I am writing a graphics program to model projectile motion of a ball being thrown. What I am looking for is an equation that will give a specific X and Y coordinate, in the parabolic path, for any specific time it is given, and a arbitratry velocity and angle.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

For example, if I give it some arbitrary velocity and angle, I would like to be able to figure out how high in the air the ball is and how far it has traveled horizontally at 5 seconds, 13.4 seconds or any other random time.

Any help would be appreciated.
