Projectile Motion Calculator

I made this code just for a math game called Project TRIG.
( )

I used to calculate the solutions of the game manually, but to make it easier, I made a code which automatically calculates for it. The computer will save us from advanced
math concepts.

This is basically helpful for beginners to understand some c++ concepts like iteration structures, the use of sstream, and jump statements, and also on how to perform complex mathematical operations by the use of simple algorithm.

Just a few guide for the needed values:
At the game, you can activate the grid button to calculate the distance.
angle = decide what value of angle you want to use.
yo = the height of the cannon.
x coordinate = the distance of target horizontally.
y coordinate = the distance of target vertically.

The code is very suitable to anyone who is just beginning programming.

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. After downloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.

Virus note: All files are scanned once-a-day by for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them.


1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.


Nice calculator :-)

Here's another visualization based tutorial page for projectile motion.
