Description

In chapter 5, students are introduced to the kinematic equations describing an object undergoing a constant acceleration. Students are asked to write code simulating the flight of a projectile over level ground and sloping ground. The students are asked to have the projectile strike a target, using position vectors. The students are asked to annotate a VPython “mystery code”.
