Flipping Physics Posted May 22, 2014 Share Posted May 22, 2014 Name: A Brief Look at the Force of Drag using Numerical Modeling (or The Euler Method) Category: Dynamics Date Added: 22 May 2014 - 05:01 PM Submitter: Flipping Physics Short Description: None Provided This is how you include air resistance in projectile motion. It requires the Drag Force and Numerical Modeling (or the Euler Method). It is also very helpful to use a spreadsheet to do the calculations. I prove a statement from a previous projectile motion problem video, "Air resistance decreases the x displacement of the ball by less than 1 cm."
