The road followed by a rock from the point of release to the point of complete stop.

OBS

The intended path is usually referred to as the "line of flight," and the line actually followed, called the "path of a rock," but the distinction between the two expressions is not always clearly made.

Tracé que suit une pierre sur la glace depuis le point de lâcher jusqu'au point d'immobilisation complète.

OBS

On appelle le tracé suggéré ou recherché, «ligne de lancer», et «trajectoire d'une pierre», le tracé effectivement suivi, mais cette distinction ne tient pas toujours dans l'usage que l'on fait de ces deux expressions.
