Fill in the starting velocity(max. 75) and the x value and y value for the target. **Press Submit each time.**

Calculate the two launch angles and the time taken by the particle to reach the target in each case.

Press Angle 1 to see the path of the projectile when launched with the smaller angle.

Press Answer 1 to see the value of the first angle.

Press Angle 2 to see the path of the projectile when launched with the bigger angle.

Press Answer 2 to see the value of the second angle.

**Some input combinations will not work. Increase the velocity or decrease the y value and try again.**

Press Reset to repeat the simulation with different launch velocities and target positions.

You need to use large values in this simulation to clearly see the paths when you press Show Trail.
