Optimal Launch Angle 45 degrees1970-01-01T00:00:00+00:00Simulation showing how the launch angle influences the range of a projectile. The maximum horizontal distance or range is achieved when the launch angle is 45 degrees. You can try this out with a hose and notice how the water goes furthest when the noz...PT10S//d3e1m60ptf1oym.cloudfront.net/3a4ac418-1f64-4002-b5a6-e0d02c38b39d/maximum-range-projectile-Russell-KIghtley_xlarge.jpghttps://www.scientific.pictures/-/galleries/physics/-/medias/3a4ac418-1f64-4002-b5a6-e0d02c38b39d/pricehttps://www.scientific.pictures/-/galleries/physics/-/medias/3a4ac418-1f64-4002-b5a6-e0d02c38b39d/price
Compression wave or longitudinal wave: shown travelling from left to right in a medium. The particles are first shoved forward by the pressure and then they return to their original positions (they oscillate in same the direction that the wave travels, hence longitudinal). This creates a region of higher pressure and density (compression) that travels along as a wave. This is immediately followed by a zone of lower pressure (or rarefaction, where the particles are further apart). This is how sound propagates in air or water and how p-waves travel during earthquakes.
