Exercise: The cannon ball problem.

Assume we have a cannon pointing X degrees with respect to ground.
The cannon mouth is Y meters above ground.
A cannon ball is fired with initial velocity of V km/h.
  • How far will it reach the gound?
  • What is the maximum height and at what time, assuming t = 0 is the initial time of flight?
  • How long (the period) is the flight of the ball?

Write a GUI solver (Java program) for this problem. Submit a tgz file containing the .jar and the .java files of this project.
