Re: Vertical Motion Model

Vertical motion model is just that, you want a mathimatical model of where an object will be, how fast it will be traveling, and how fast it will be accelerating, when it is falling, or possibly being propelled (although that is quite complex).

What exactly do you want to know?

"In the real world, this would be a problem.  But in mathematics, we can just define a place where this problem doesn't exist.  So we'll go ahead and do that now..."
