Projectile motion simulator

Updated: Dec 31, 2023

We don't always have a lab to carry out these experiments, but sometimes a simulator will do just as well!

Attempt the following question on paper before using the lab simulator, then use the simulator to check your answer.

An object is launched at a velocity of 15 m/s in a direction making an angle of 25° upward with the horizontal. What is the horizontal range (maximum x above ground) of the object?

As an additional task, start with the cannon 2 m above ground level, set the angle to 30° upward with the horizontal, and the initial speed 10 m/s. Work out the horizontal range.
