1. Trajectory. It is the path traced by a projectile in the space.
2. Velocity of projection. It is the velocity with which a projectile is projected.
3. Angle of projection. It is the angle,with the horizontal,at which the projectile is projected.
4. Time of flight. It is the total time taken by a projectile, to reach maximum height and to return back to the ground.
5. Range. It is the distance between the point of projection and the point where the projectile strikes the ground.
