What is the difference between projectile motion and a rocket motion?

1 Answer(s)

A projectile has no motor/rocket on it, so all of its momentum is given to it as it is launched. An example of a projectile would be pen that you throw across a room.A rocket or missile does have a motor/rocket on it so it can accelerate itself while moving and so resist other forces such as gravity.
