### trajectory

(Learning Modules / Mathematics / Modelling projectiles) Path through space.

===Orbiting objects=== If instead of a uniform downwards gravitational force we consider two bodies orbiting with the mutual gravitation between them, we obtain Kepler`s laws of planetary motion. The derivation of these was one of the major works of Isaac Newton and provided much of the motivation for the development of differential calculus. ==C....

*[fluid mechanics]* One problem with this formulation is the polar singularity: notice how the denominator in the first equation goes to zero when the latitude is 90 degreesâ€”plus or minus. One means of overcoming this is to use a locally Cartesian coordinate system close to the poles. Another is to perform the integration on a pair of Azimu...

The arc described by a projectile (or a load of shot) after it exits the muzzle of a firearm. Falling objects accelerate downwards at a rate of 32 feet per second, per second. The faster a projectile travels, the greater the distance it can cover in a given time before dropping too far. Hence, the higher the velocity of a bullet, the flatter the tr...
