I have looked at the question in all its bearings, I have resolutely attacked it, and by incontrovertible calculations I find that a projectile endowed with an initial velocity of 12,000 yards per second, and aimed at the moon, must necessarily reach it.

The initial velocity of the reaction is the best indicator of the effect of an experimental variable.
Discrepancy in the initial velocity or mine mass, as well as range (due to changing cartridge temperature) corrections, is included in the program by replacing the original data.
It is assumed that the particles enter into previously computed, single-phase velocity field with an initial velocity lag determined by coefficient [k.
The flow of exhalation depends on the breathing mode (nose or mouth, which determines the initial velocity and direction of the expiration flow), respiration flow rate (which depends on the activity level, body weight, sex and individual differences), nose and mouth shape (different from person to person), body and head posture, etc.
