I have never taken any physics course before, but I am designing a game in which the projectile(bullet) is going to drop over time.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I want to know which equation do I use to calculate the position on a trajectory. Given that I have the angle, and initial velocity.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trajectory

From this would it be theas it is the only one I can see there that is returning a y value.Derivation of the equation of motion

Secondly, if this is true, would the black trajectory here:

Represent the kind of output I'm going to see, since (at the moment) I am not incorporating any drag?

Thanks in advance
