If a projectile shot from the ground were shot at a target located at a specified height above the ground, and would hit the target, is there a known formula to find the projectile’s height on its trajectory a specified distance (measured along the flat ground) from the target’s base or from the projectile’s launch point (which is on the ground)? I’m hoping for something based on the distance along the ground rather than on time. I have some rough numbers to use for drag and for lift and numbers for angle and velocity. Seems to me the drag and lift would prevent the trajectory from being the same shape on both sides of the trajectory’s highest point. The entire trajectory would occur over a flat surface.
