A bomb is released from an aircraft. Its trajectory is:
A. a straight line
C. an arc of a circle
D. a zigzag path
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.
Substituting equation 1 in 2, we get,
The above equation is an equation of a parabola. Hence, option B is correct.
