Lab 6.2 - Parabolic Motion

Parabolic motion is what happens when you pass a ball, fire a cannon, or launch a car into the air with a trebuchet. Or throw a child into a pool.

Create a program that will take the initial velocity in meters per second and angle in degrees of a projectile and calculate the projectile's time in flight, maximum height, and distance. Assume negligible friction and wind, and a starting height of 0 meters. Round all answers to the nearest two decimal places.

If you need some help, you might find these equations useful.

Here are some test values and answers (rounded) for you to test:

Use meters, seconds, and degrees for units. As always, design a useful and proper interface and use good software engineering practices.
