Does the angle of a catapult affect the distance a ball would go?
Hello: * Yes, the angle of a catapult does affect the distance. And this applies to both changing the angle of the catapult and changing the angle of the terrain under the catapult. If you shoot the catapult at say 45 degrees, you have very good distance. If you shoot it at 30 degrees, while it may be further, it would be lower to the ground and perhaps not travel as far hitting trees and running into wind-shear. If you shoot at say 80 degrees, while the lob goes high up in the air, it won't travel very far. So your best bet, for maximum distance, is to take your catapult to the highest possible altitude, aim for 45 degrees, taking into account the wind direction and speed, and lob away. Don't hit anyone. :) Answer Actually, the maximum distance that can be achieved from a catapult is at an angle of 45 degrees. Every degree increase from 0 up to 45 approaches the maximum distance that something can be thrown. Every degree from 45 to 90 decreases the distance.
