# Projectile Motion

Hey,

Can somebody please tell me how I can simulate a trajectory or projectile motion. I am building a game where a character is moving and as it gains momentum and moves up a slope, I want the character to launch it self.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Cheers!!

Look up Euler integration'. You model your character/projectile/whatever as a point mass. In each frame, compute the sum of all the forces, compute acceleration (a vector) as force divided by mass, and then do this:
  velocity += acceleration * delta_time;
position += velocity * delta_time;`
