Projectile motion is one of the most common curvilinear motions and is a good starting point for learning kinematics of particles. Through a simple animated example of cannon hitting targets, the user learns the concepts of projectile-related topics covering rectangular coordinates (x-y) and normal and tangential coordinates (n-t).
