public class m1 extends Applet
{
public void paint (Graphics g)
{
float Dx=0,Dy=0,Dz=0, Vxy=0,Vz=0,Vx=0,Vy=0,Axy=0,Az=0;
float TAccn=15,TSpeed=10,t=5;

int n=1,i;

double[] X = new double[5];
double[] Y = new double[5];
double[] Z = new double[5];

//Acceleration with climb motion

Axy = TAccn * ((float) Math.cos(climb));

Az = TAccn * ((float) Math.sin(climb));

Vxy = TSpeed * ((float) Math.cos(climb));

Vz = TSpeed * ((float) Math.sin(climb));

Vx = Vxy * ((float) Math.sin(heading));

Vy = Vxy * ((float) Math.cos(heading));

float t1 = t * t;

Dx = 0.5 * Axy * t1 * sin_heading;

Dy = 0.5 * Axy * t1 * ((float) Math.cos(heading));

Dz = 0.5 * Az * t1;

for(i=0;i<n;i++)
{

X[i] = X[i] + Vx * t + Dx;

Y[i] = Y[i] + Vy * t + Dy;

Z[i] = Z[i] + Vz * t + Dz;

int x1 = (int) X[i];
int y1 = (int) Y[i];

g.drawLine(0,0,x1,y1);
}
}

}

this is the program i hav written

but its giving error like
possible loss of precision for the lines

Dx = 0.5 * Axy * t1 * sin_heading;

Dy = 0.5 * Axy * t1 * ((float) Math.cos(heading));

Dz = 0.5 * Az * t1;

0.5 * Axy * t1 * sin_heading;

The problem is you are multiplying the float variable with 0.5 (which is double by default). Try using 0.5f if you want to do it the same way you are doing.
