Ballistic and Bullet Flight Path Calculation

  1. Aug 14, 2008 #1
    Hello all, I'm new to this forum. I am currently writing a small piece of software to calculate a bullets flight path based on as many different factors as possible: Wind, Elevation, Beginning Velocity, Bullet's Rate of Twist, Bullet Weight, Air Density, etc., any other possible factor that could have an effect on the bullet's flight.

    Could anyone point me in the right direction of where I might could find the equations or other useful information for this project.
