This single animation uses a cartoon character to solve a "cannonball" problem (projectile motion) using basic Physics and Mathematics.

The problem: A cannon is fired at a ship 1000 meters away. The cannon is raised to an elevation of 30 degrees, and the velocity of the cannonball as it leaves the barrel is known to be 300 m/s. Does the cannonball hit the ship, and if not, by how much does it fall short or long?
