Projectile Motion of a Ball with Aerodynamic Drag

This simulation compares the projectile trajectories of a ball with and without the effects of drag for specified initial conditions (height, speed and launch angle). An Excel data set that contains coefficient of drag values for a range of Reynolds numbers is attached to this model and is used for estimating the drag forces.

This model is ideal for use in the engineering classroom to teach fundamental concepts.
