Weekend Programming Challenge – Week #27 – Angry Birds


Image

Problem:

Write code which calculates the trajectory of Angry-bird with these input parameters: Angle, Initial Force, Bird Weight, Air resistance, Earth Gravity. If your tools allow animation great, otherwise even simply ascii art drawing is OK🙂

The rules:

You can code the solution in any programming language during the weekend and have to submit it to info@olimex.com latest on Sunday Octover 6th.

On Monday we will upload the solutions on GitHub https://github.com/OLIMEX/WPC

You can play with your real name or with nick if you want to be anonymous, we will not disclosure your personal info if you do not want to.

    Could you provide simple input and output?
    I am more interested in the output. Should it be a formula of the y value in regards of the x argument or I should print the (x,y) value for a given step?
    Can we use any graphic engines?

      Talking of sample input, I suggest that Olimex asks the participants to write (in the language of choice) a test which tests that the output of the code for the sample input is equal to the sample output. A test, full stop.

    don’t you mean “initial velocity” instead of “initial force” ?
