If a tennis ball is thrown through the air it will eventually hit the ground due to gravity. Using Euler's method, write a short script (Python, Matlab, R, etc.) to find the trajectory of the ball which will maximize the distance the ball lands from the thrower taking into account air...

We conduct an analysis of a falling ball in liquid to determine its terminal velocity and to ascertain just what radius ball for a given mass density is necessary to attain a designated terminal velocity.

We are given data on the time and position of a whiffle ball as it falls to the ground. We attempt to model the falling ball and we confront the different resistance terms and models. Finally, we introduce a new way of comparing models, the Akaike Information Criterion, and apply it to our models.
