A body projected from a certain height horizontally with some initial velocity is called horizontal projectile. It has only initial velocity along the horizontal direction but it has no initial velocity along the vertical direction.

But as the body start moving, acceleration due to gravity starts acting, velocity of the body in the horizontal direction remains same as there is no acceleration due to gravity remains same. But velocity component of the body along the Y direction starts increasing. We can find the displacement along the horizontal and vertical directions using the basic equations of motion and we can show that the path is parabola as shown in the video lesson below.
