Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I just have one quick question ..

How can i use newton's 2nd law to account for side wind (cross wind) against a projectile?

I want to find this equation or the diff equation to solve it as i want to be able to find the effects the cross wind will have on the drift of the projectile.

I know that i will have to model my simulation in 3-D on exclel (x,y,z) , but i am in great need of this equation to be able to solve z.

thank you
