Re: [forensic-science] Ballistics equation


The. Equations are complex.  Most people these days use exterior ballistics programs like Sierra's Infinity 6, or Prodas. Depending on what they need. There are a number of programs out there, those are just examples.

If you want to go into the math process you might read the exterior ballistics sections of the Lyman or Sierra reloading manuals both by Dr. W. McDonald's & Ted Almgren.   There is a new book out that take you through it with out the math, then has a math section in the back for those that want it, "Their Arrows will darken the Sun," by Dr. Denney.

I'm on vacation and away from my lab, if you want more info. drop me an email in a week when I'll have some references to refer to.
