Projectile Range and Optimal Launch Angles Explained

Want To Learn More? To watch the entire video and ALL of the videos in the series:

Join us in this enlightening video as we explore the fascinating world of projectiles and their optimal launch angles. We dive into the physics behind how a fixed initial speed affects the range of a projectile and why, for most angles, there are two choices that yield the same range. Delve into factors that affect an archer's ability to hit a target, including wind, and learn why a smaller angle, closer to the horizontal, is often preferable. Discover when and why a larger angle may be necessar
