# Maximum Height Projectile Calculator

Projectile motion is a type of motion we experience in our daily life. A projectile is some particle or body thrown into air or space. The Curved path along which the projectile travels is what is known as trajectory. The given below is the maximum height projectile calculator to determine maximum height reached in projectile by an object thrown in the air. Enter the initial velocity, theta, and acceleration due to gravity in the required field to know the maximum height.

Projectile motion is a type of motion we experience in our daily life. A projectile is some particle or body thrown into air or space. The Curved path along which the projectile travels is what is known as trajectory. The given below is the maximum height projectile calculator to determine maximum height reached in projectile by an object thrown in the air. Enter the initial velocity, theta, and acceleration due to gravity in the required field to know the maximum height.

Code to add this calci to your website  #### Formula:

Maximum height reached = V0² sin² θ / 2g Where, V0 = Initial Velocity θ (sin θ) = Component Along y-axis g = Acceleration of Gravity

### Example:

Find the maximum height of a ball which is is projected horizontally with a velocity of 40 ms-1 at 50°.

#### Solution:

Maximum height reached = 40² sin²50 / 2 x 9.8
= 47.904 m
