leads the target
Trajectory Shift and Projectile drift combine to constitute the _______. When targets are on the left, the effects to drifts and shift compound each other; both cause the round to move _____.
The amount that a projectile jumps is proportional to its initial yaw. Firing to the right produces a ____ jump ; firing to the left produces an ____ jump.
Unlike a bullet the CG of a rocket is in front of the center of pressure.As the rocket propellant burns, the CG moves ___ ___. The fins of the rocket cause the center of pressure to follow the CG.
