The study of model rockets, the flight of a baseball, or the "bend" of a soccer kick are excellent ways for students to learn the basics of forces and the response of an object to external forces.

Ballistic Flight Equations

A ball in flight has no engine to produce continuous thrust and the resulting flight is similar to the flight of shell from a cannon, or a bullet from a gun. This type of flight is called ballistic flight and on this page we present the equations that describe ballistic flight. Ballistic flight only occurs under the ideal conditions that weight is the only force acting on the object. There is no thrust and no aerodynamic drag acting on an object in ballistic flight. Such flight conditions would occur on the Moon, where there is no atmosphere to produce drag. On Earth a baseball or a soccer ball generate a moderate amount of aerodynamic drag and the flight path is not strictly ballistic.

X = U0 * t In the vertical plane, weight is the only external force acting on the object. dV/dt = - W/m = -g. Chemical Crayon. Paula Golden: Keep Science Fairs Alive. Science fairs, those time-tested incubators of future American scientists and engineers and a national fixture for generations, are in trouble.

Paula Golden: Keep Science Fairs Alive

Recent stories in major metropolitan newspapers across the country have reported that science fairs are being threatened with extinction when local sponsors drop out. In Los Angeles, the California Science Center is looking to find a sponsor for its annual California State Science Fair after a major corporate sponsor dropped out.

Last year, the Irvine, Calif., Unified School District almost canceled its well-respected science fair because of lack of funding. A major Midwest paper recently sounded the alarm, noting that "cuts threaten these showcases for student inventions and scientific research. Beyond blue ribbons, the fairs offer students college scholarships and are launch pads to prestigious national competitions and even careers. " Amen. Cool math Lessons - What's a Fractal?
