Any ball or small stone that is thrown follows a certain path. Many of us have experienced throwing objects towards a specific goal many times. If we throw a ball to someone or against something, the ball will follow a certain path, a visualized motion. Hopefully you can imagine a motion path if you are asked to throw something towards a target some 10 meters away. Somehow we can imagine the height and path in order to get the ball (or small stone) in the basket or what we are aiming at. If we want to shoot a basketball to go into the basket, we consider elevation angle and initial velocity also. Most of us humans do that without thinking about it.
