I want to model a Differential Equation for a projectile motion under 2 forces (gravity and wind)(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

So, what I have now is an algorithm that simulate the parametric motion (2d) of the project under those 2 forces (given a P position of the projectile with velocity V under a vector of forces F (or acceleration as my projectiles have no mass), find a new position for each time T)

(Link to the motion simulation example: http://s12.postimg.org/wbr8tyej1/projectile.png)

I want to model it as a differential equation. If possible with these variants:

1- basic differential equation projectile motion with no wind, just gravity...the quadratic equation from basic physics should be the solution to it

2- the "complete" form with wind and gravity as I described

3- add drag force. I know that the equation may have no solution

I've learned to solve them but not to model them; if you could give me or point a good text book that show how to model it I'd be glad
