Nonsymmetric ballistic range, height, time-of-flight and optimal flight path angle computations with programs for a Hewlett-Packard 65 calculator
Shudde, Rex H.
MetadataShow full item record
The purpose of this report is to provide the equations and HP-65 Programmable Calculator programs for computing ballistic range, height, time-of-flight, and particularly the flight path angle which maximizes ballistic ranges for non-symmetric launch and target positions. A no-atmosphere, non-rotating, spherical Earth is assumed. (Author)
