A Trick of Gravity
Newburgh, Ronald
Physics Teacher, v48 n6 p401-402 Sep 2010
It's both surprising and rewarding when an old, standard problem reveals a subtlety that expands its pedagogic value. I realized recently that the role of gravity in the range equation for a projectile is not so simple as first appears. This realization may be completely obvious to others but was quite new to me.
