The Interactive Physics, as I recall, gives one a
crude way of controlling air resistance. Thus one
can collect data by simulating experiments. Then
one can try to describe the data with a formula,
or test a preexisting formula. For real data one
should consult artillery manuals, I suppose.

What Alex wants, probably, is a formula which
gives the value of the air resistance coefficient
as a function of an asymmetry parameter, such
"the optimal launch angle," or "the difference
between the ideal and real ranges." I have
not seen such formulas.

In projectile motion without resistance the path is a parabola.Brian Whatcott Altus OK Eureka!
With resisatance, the path is asymetric. Is there a standard way to
measure that asymetry? Can that measure be analytically related to
