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.
