Pellet Altitude

I would actually would like to know.

Any computer programming that could work out?

 

I bet NASA could work it out. They're nerds too. :whistling:

The key matter is air. If there is no air resistance, then it has nothing slowing it to a terminal velocity. Ignoring air resistance it will travel upwards, starting at its muzzle velocity and reaching a maximum height once it has lost all of its upwards velocity due to the earths pull, then it would fall back down, accelerating back up to that same velocity it started.

However taking into account for air resistance, the problem becomes much more complicated and as I am only on my 5th can of Thatchers Haze a matter of fluid dynamics. The pellet will experience both negative acceleration from the earth, but also a certain amount from the air pushing back on it, relative to it's velocity, ambient air pressure etc. Once it reaches a certain, significantly reduced height, it will fall back down, reaching its terminal velocity, and maintaining this in a relatively less harmful manner.Now for the math...........:laugh:

The math................

I'm not disputing your maths as I know nothing about it, but if a pellet can barely cover 50/60 yards on a trajectory, I just can't see it would go over twice that distance vertically. :hmm:

seriously?...

 

seriously get chairgun.... (theres no dimentional porthole for the pellets to vanish into lol...its up to hundreds plural of yards at the right angle like...)

persavere a bit with it you'll get it, then check out the ranges, i personaly take rabbits to a 65 max, but the odd one creeps in at the 70 mark where its totaly at its killing lowest....on a good day like. and you can exspect a shit load more than 40 meters btw...eeeek..woodies at the 140 mark arnt hard...the problem is the retaing the 4fp's yu need to kill it (well bit less on a woody with the right pellet etc etc etc).
