Moving bodies with constant mass : bows and arrows

Author: Timothy David; David Felber; Shotlist (Firm); Films for the Humanities (Firm)
Publisher: Princeton, NJ : Films for the Humanities & Sciences, ©2000.
Series: Math in a box.
Edition/Format:   VHS video : VHS tape   Visual material : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
In this program, geometry is combined with approximation to solve relatively complex problems involving shooting an arrow and landing an airplane on the deck of an aircraft carrier. Emphasizing the value of sketching as a visualization tool, the program also explains how the solution of the archery problem, through geometric inversion, can help solve the problem of a plane landing.
