published by the University of Oregon
This website contains a java applet designed to simulate the two-dimensional projectile motion of a cannonball fired from a cannon. The user may vary the launch angle, initial velocity, wind, air density, gravity, and size of the cannonball. The simulation is presented in the form of a game wherein the objective is to hit a monkey released above the cannon before it hits the ground.

Please note that this resource requires Java Applet Plug-in.
