Equation of projectile with drag and lift

  1. Jul 25, 2016 #1
    I need an equation that solves for the height of a projectile at a specific x position. The known variables are spin of the ball, initial position, initial velocity, initial launch angle and the drag and lift coefficients.

    Welcome to the PF.

    How does a projectile have "lift"? Do you mean like a golf ball with backspin?

    I googled projectile motion with air resistance, and got lots of good hits....
