Abstract

The objective of this study is to determine the projectile motion of an M16 bullet. This investigation was done by monitoring the angle of projectile motion of M16 bullet with the increase in the range of shooting distances produced from simulation of data. When the shooters begin their live-fire exercise at a shorter distance, the result in angle of projectile produced was very small. As the range of shooting distances was increased, it was found out that the angle of projectile produced will definitely rise too. The exact segmental angle itself does not provide an accurate platform for shooting as there exists projectile motion of bullet which took part during the shooting process. Thus, this study will enable the shooter to find out whether the projectile motion of bullet does affect the shooting accuracy at the target as their posture were kept fixed at a stable position. This is important as it is one of the key to ensure the victory of a shooter in every shot during live-fire exercise.
