On this page are the lecture notes and animation which discuss one-dimensional motion with air resistance

 Notes - 1D Motion with Air Resistance Velocity Position In this animation note that as terminal velocity is approached the trajectory becomes linear Position and Velocity Position First 2 Seconds Entire Trajectory The following is an extra credit assignment which extends the ideas discussed to projectile motion in the plane. It also describes how to graph parametric eqns in Mathcad. The extension to 3-D is then obvious. Projectile Motion in the Plane Answer to Projectile Motion Exercise The Lion and the AntelopeThe following is an example which combines parametric equations and 1st order differential equations which gives the trajectroy of a lion chasing down an antelope.
