Enter the initial velocity and launch angle into the calculator to determine the maximum elevation of the golf ball. This calculator can also evaluate any of the variables given the others are known.

## Golf Elevation Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the golf ball elevation.

E = (V^2 * sin(2 * θ)) / g

Variables:

- E is the maximum elevation of the golf ball (m) V is the initial velocity of the golf ball (m/s) θ is the launch angle (degrees) g is the acceleration due to gravity (9.8 m/s^2)

To calculate the maximum elevation of the golf ball, square the initial velocity of the golf ball, then multiply the result by the sine of twice the launch angle. Divide the result by the acceleration due to gravity.

## How to Calculate Golf Elevation?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Golf Elevation using the given formula:

- First, determine the initial velocity of the golf ball (V) in meters per second (m/s).
- Next, determine the launch angle (θ) in degrees.
- Next, calculate the square of the initial velocity (V^2).
- Next, calculate the sine of twice the launch angle (sin(2 * θ)).
- Next, multiply the square of the initial velocity (V^2) by the sine of twice the launch angle (sin(2 * θ)).
- Finally, divide the result by the acceleration due to gravity (g = 9.8 m/s^2) to calculate the maximum elevation of the golf ball (E).

**Example Problem:**

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge:

Initial velocity of the golf ball (V) = 20 m/s

Launch angle (θ) = 45 degrees

Acceleration due to gravity (g) = 9.8 m/s^2
