How would you calculate air resistance from a projectile

  1. Jun 24, 2009 #1
    im very interested to find out. iv been trying to nut it out but as of yet have not really got anywhere and so i thought id ask the brains here at physicsforums.

    btw i realise direction changes but does the magnitude of air resitance change? i was assuming it didnt but if i did im just going to give up right now.

    These two articles together should help:
