A body is thrown with a speed \(v_0\) parallel to the \(x\)-axis from the height \(y_0\) horizontally, passes through a parabolic trajectory and lands at a distance \(w\) from the throwing point. The \(y\)-axis describes the current height \(y\) of the body and the \(x\)-axis its distance \(x\) from the throwing position.
