Projectile Motion (Desmos)

You can do a simple model of projectile motion in Desmos and create sliders to alter the angle and speed of projection in order to see how these affect the motion. You can also set the start height above ground. Make sure you have angles set to measure in degrees (settings, above zoom, right-hand side).



    • Hi Dan! Thanks for getting in touch! I do adore Desmos, can quite easily spend my evenings making graphs with it, I’m an unashamed graph nerd! I’m running a course on Desmos next week for some local teachers – trying to spread the word, I assumed everyone would be using it by now, but that’s not remotely the case it would seem.
