Best Answer

ballistics is the science of launching projectiles flying through the air and hitting a precise target.

a bullets trajectory ballistics are affected by:

-the weight, size and shape of the bullet.

-the amount and type of gunpowder used.

-the weapon the bullet is fired from.

- gravity

-weather conditions like rain, wind, temperature, altitude, humidity and the brightness of the sun

- the coreolis effect.

As a bullet flies through the air it takes a certain amount of time to reach its target. in that time the earth beneath the bullet is still rotating at 1,674.4 km/h, so in the time your bullet reaches its target it will have moved a bit.

and a last word of advise, don't play with guns.
