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...

The goal of this project is for students to develop, analyze, and compare three different models for the flight of a sponge dart moving under the influences of gravity and air resistance. The first two models are based respectively on the common simplifying assumptions of no air resistance and...
