Learning about hyperbolic trig functions in calc class. It seems really interesting, and I would like to study it in-depth. Anybody got any info??

I'll give it a try. The ball is like a point mass and it's shape does not change appreciably under the force of gravity while it is in motion. This changes of course if the ball hits something.Originally posted by Danielsix-five@Feb 7 2006, 05:35 PM
Here's an idea. If a catinary is created by suspending a wire between two posts, then its shape must result from gravity. So why doesn't a ball thrown in the air, which is also acted upon by gravity, form a path of a catinary. (Is that the right grammar?)
