Projectile motion is the motion of a body thrown with some initial velocity with the horizontal direction, and then allowed to move in two dimensions under the action of gravity alone. For eg. a bulled fired from a rifle, a javelion thrown by an athelete.
Uniform circular motion is the motion of an object along a circular path with a constant speed. For eg. a stone which is tied to a rope and is being swung in circles.
