Homework Statement


Im try to teach myself the physics behind throwing a ball. Its for an independent study im doing for a grade 11-2 math corse. Im having trouble with coming up with equations to help me figure out different parts of the over all picture of throw a ball.

I.E The starting hight, the d/t, and the force applied when given other varibables.



Homework Equations


Air resictence is not applied.


The Attempt at a Solution


I know that the equation involves angles, hight, inital velocity, gravity, mass, time, and distance...?

Welcome to PF.

Trajectories depend on the initial velocities and direction and gravity. After release it's just gravity until the earth intervenes.

The initial velocity will depend on mass and force to accelerate the mass to its initial velocity.

Here are some formulas that will help you with the kinematics of motion.

Those and F = m*a should give you a good start.
