Bows, Arrows, and Aircraft Carriers [electronic resource]: Moving Bodies With Constant Mass

Format
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
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.
