A=(t*((-(32t^2))*(b/90)+s))*(sin b)(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A=altitude

t=time (in seconds)

b=maintained angle (think of a climbing airplane)

s=speed (in feet/second)

Is this correct?

Additionally, does this equation work for two objects approaching each other in opposite directions on parallel lanes of travel? It computes the angle vs. the distance from the place they are side by side:

A=arctan (1/abs (2x))

Where A is the angle in degrees and the portion underneath the "1" is an equation of their distance. A simple equation of arctan in my opinion.
