# How to graph the motion of a projectile?

Suppose I have a projectile, fired at angle $$\theta$$, with velocity $$v_0$$, assuming it's only acted upon by gravity. How can I find an equation to enable me to plot the motion (vertical height against time) on a graph (I'll be doing this computationally)

• It's a classical problem, you can find the solution in every Physics book. Are you interested to derive it by yourself? – user Nov 11 '18 at 21:24
• Refer for example to Projectile motion. – user Nov 11 '18 at 21:25
• The answer to this does not come from mathematics, but from physics ... – Bram28 Nov 11 '18 at 21:26

Note that your $$x(t)=(v_0 \cos \theta )t$$
and your $$y(t)= -16 t^2+(v_0 \sin \theta )t +x_0$$
