### Scientific method

**Range of Projectile**

This term “Range of Projectile” is associated with physics and to discuss it in the context of a cricket six length determination is quite fine. In this Range of Projectile mechanism, we throw a projectile in the air at an angle without considering the vertical and horizontal components of motion.

1.) **Based on the angle of hitting**

In context of cricket, we can take cricket ball as a projectile and when a batsman hit a six, it goes at an angle in the air. So we calculate the length of six on the base of angle of hitting. By using projectile formula we can state:

[R=v² Sin (2θ)/g]

Where: v= velocity at time of hitting

g= 9.8 m/s²

θ= Angle at which ball is hit.

2.) **With the use of initial velocity and acceleration of ball**.

s = ut + 1/2*at²

t = the time the ball stays in the air

u = initial velocity at which the ball left the bat (calculated like bowling speed)

a = 9.8 m/s² s= distance travel by the ball
