We started off with the simplest type of projectile - those that are projected horizontally. They therefore have an initial vertical velocity of zero so are pretty much the same as our calculations on bouncing balls and the like.

Things get a little more complicated when you launch projectiles into the air at an angle because the initial vertical velocity is no longer zero. If this is the case then you must think about the horizontal velocity and the vertical velocity separately.
