This program calculates the angle of elevation required
to launch a projectile from a point Y metres high,
at a given velocity U m/s such that
it will land some distance X m away. If you're interested
in the derivation then email me, my address is available
off my web page (above). Note that it assumes gravity is
10m/s^2 downwards.
Symbols:
-> Assign (the arrow)
tan-1 arctan or inverse tan
^2 square
^4 raise to the power of 4
sqrt square root
* multiply
/ divide
