Advances in Balistics Analysis

- Trajectory is the path shots or bullets take during flight. Several factors affect this path such as gravity, air resistance, velocity and mass. Gravity pulls the bullet down as it is travelling forward. This results in a downward curved path. Air resistance holds back the passage of the bullet. This slows its flight. Velocity is the speed of the bullet. Mass is the weight of the bullet. The following drawings show the typical paths of bullets and the relationship of these paths to the line of sight, whether determined by open sights or optical sights....   [tags: trajectory, crime, alias]
