# A bomb is released from an aircraft. Its trajectory is:

A. a straight line

B. parabola

C. an arc of a circle

D. a zigzag path

Answer :

Let the aircraft be moving horizontally with speed u. Now, when the bomb is released, it experiences gravitational force on it and thus acceleration due to gravity in a vertically downward direction.

**Initially:**

**Finally:**

Substituting equation 1 in 2, we get,

**The above equation is an equation of a parabola. ****Hence, option B is correct.**

Rate this question :

Mathematically prove that acceleration due to the gravity of a body is independent of its mass.
