A Ball Is Thrown Horizontally ?

When a ball is thrown horizontally, it travels in a straight line. This is because it has the same horizontal and vertical components to its velocity. In order to change the direction of a ball, you need to change one of these components.

The easiest way to do this is by throwing the ball up or down. In this case, there will be an additional vertical component to its velocity, which means it will move up or down in addition to continuing along its original direction.

If you want to throw a ball at an angle other than horizontal or vertical, then you need to add some sideways motion as well as vertical or horizontal motion. If you throw a ball with just enough sideways motion on top of its initial horizontal motion, then it will travel parallel to its original direction but at an angle from it.
