import java.awt.*; import java.util.*; import java.applet.*; import java.lang.*; 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; double heading=75, climb=30; 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 sin_heading = (float) Math.sin(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. [ October 22, 2008: Message edited by: Vijitha Kumara ]
