Understanding the Range Equation of Projectile Motion

By Flipping Physics, 06/10/2014
  • 1 comment
The Horizontal Range of a Projectile is defined as the horizontal displacement of a projectile when the displacement of the projectile in the y-direction is zero. This video explains how to use the equation, why a launch angle of 45° gives the maximum range and why complimentary angles give the same range.
