# Trajectory Range

## Description

A trajectory or flight path is the path that a moving object follows through space as a function of time. A trajectory can be described mathematically either by the geometry of the path, or as the position of the object over time. The range of a projectile following a ballistic trajectory is the greatest distance the object travels along the x-axis. The x-axis is parallel to the ground and the y axis perpendicular to it ( parallel to the gravitational field lines ) and is depended on the initial velocity and the initial angle.
