Motion of a ball thrown in the air
Click on the Show Strobe to see 0.1s strobe diagram. At the fast speed it is 0.2s/strobe.
Vx0 is the X component of the initial velocity. Vy0 is the Y component of the initial velocity.
m is the mass of the ball.
g is the gravitational constant.
A is the shape parameter of the ball for air resistance.
