Ascent-Descent. Applications of Calculus to Physics and Engineering. Modules and Monographs in Undergraduate Mathematics and Its Applications. UMAP Module 331.
Models of the motion of an object through space are discussed. The material begins with the simplest view possible in which gravity is the only force examined. Discussion progresses to an examination of the drag force, which is the resistive air force of the wind. Suggestions for further improvements are made at the conclusion of the presentation. The module contains exercises, and solutions to these problems are provided. (MP)
