Quick Reference

The height above the ground level, or the height above the point of landing, of the centre of gravity of a projectile immediately before it leaves the ground. The height of release affects the trajectory of the projectile and, for a given speed of release and angle of release, the horizontal displacement increases as the height of release increases.
