MechanicsRange (neglecting air resistance)
Using physics we can calculate the range of a projectile. On flat ground
we can use the equation
,
where d is the range (m), v is the initial velocity (
),
is
the angle of projection (
),
and g is the gravitational acceleration (
).
In this equation the /second/second units cancel out from the
and
g and the
/metres
becomes metres which is the units that the range is calculated in.
If the ground is uneven
,
with range d, velocity v, angle of projection
,
gravitational acceleration g, and initial height
.
