Trajectory Height


A trajectory or flight path is the path that a moving object follows through space as a function of time. A trajectory can be described mathematically either by the geometry of the path, or as the position of the object over time. The maximum height reached by a projectile following a ballistic (parabolic) course is depended on the initial velocity and the initial angle.
