We get the co-ordinates of a projectile
at t1, (a,b)
at t2 (c,d)
at t3, (e,f)
and so on as required.
Write a program in C++ to calculate equation of trajectory of projectile..
Hi PratyushTheGreat, welcome at DaniWeb!
What you need is linear regression for quadratic curve fitting (The trajecory of a projectile is parabolic.)
The link has an explanation and code in C#, but it should be fairly easy to google something in C++ I guess.
I think you will have to specify angle of projection too.
Well get the input . . . put into algorithm and then you have the output . . .provided that you know the algorithm . . .
Am too lazy to write an algorithm for you .. . so you better write your own and post it.
I think you will have to specify angle of projection too
I don't think so. It is the other way around! Once you have calculated the equation(3 points is the absolute minimum here) you could calculate that angle if you wanted to.
3 points is the absolute minimum here)
Dont you think with angle of projection it will be easier.
If only three points are given then that is not a problem either.
