Homework Help: Conceptual Projectile Motion with Wind Resistance!

  1. Aug 29, 2011 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    How should the thrower adjust the angles of launch if he is throwing the object into a velocity of 40 m/s wind?

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I really have no idea. Personally, I think throwing the object at a lower angle would help throwing it further, because the wind force is usually high up there???

    How does the wind affect the horizontal component of the object's velocity?

    I don't know. I am a new nerd to Physics.
