Hi all,
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.
Thank you
This is for a software program designed to trace the path of a golf ball on the green. I have a formula which tells me the angle that the ball will end up compared to the origin.
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?
