Horizontal range of a Projectile

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Classical Mechanics

Horizontal range of a Projectile formula

 $$\large{ R = \frac{ v_0^2 \; sin \; 2 \theta }{ g } }$$

Where:

$$\large{ R }$$ = horizontal range

$$\large{ g }$$ = gravitational acceleration

$$\large{ v_0 }$$ = launch velocity

$$\large{ \theta }$$ = vertical angle
