I've been struggling with this for a few weeks. I'm stumped...hoping to get some help here. Thank you in advance.
Please take a look at the image below.
I need a formula for an arc that passes through a specific point on a line angled at Theta degrees. In this specific example I've assumed that the angle is 45 degrees.
The specific point that the arc will pass through will be at Y units. For this example let's assume that Y is 5.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
For example, if my forumla tells me the angle is 45 degrees, that means that I can draw a line from the ball (origin) at a 45 degree angle and the point equal with the hole (the y coordiante) will be where the ball should end up.
That's pretty much what I've shown in the graph in the first post. The y coordiante is the hole and the angle of offset for the ball path is 45 degrees.
Does this make more sense?
