A projectile is any object projected into space (empty or not) by the exertion of a force. Although any object in motion through space (for example a thrown baseball) may be referred to as a projectile, the term more commonly refers to a ranged weapon.[1][2] Mathematical equations of motion are used to analyze projectile trajectory.

In the industrial/industry context, a projectile typically refers to an object that is propelled through the air or another medium, usually for military or industrial purposes. Projectiles can be either guided or unguided and can come in a variety of forms, including missiles, bullets, and bombs.

Examples of industries that involve the use of projectiles include:

  1. Aerospace and defense: This industry involves the development and production of a variety of guided and unguided projectiles, including missiles, rockets, and bullets. These projectiles are used for military and defense purposes, such as protecting borders or engaging in combat.

  2. Construction: This industry may use projectiles for demolition purposes, such as in the controlled demolition of a building.

  3. Mining: This industry may use explosives as projectiles to break up rocks and extract minerals.

  4. Entertainment: The entertainment industry may use projectiles in the form of pyrotechnics or special effects to create visual displays in movies, TV shows, or live performances.

Similar terms used in the industrial context include:

  1. Ammunition: This refers to a supply of projectiles, typically used for military or defense purposes.

  2. Explosives: These are materials that can be detonated to produce a large amount of energy, often used in mining or demolition.

  3. Ballistics: This is the study of the motion and behavior of projectiles, often used in forensic science or military research.

  4. Propulsion: This refers to the process of propelling an object, often through the use of rockets, engines, or other forms of energy.
