Dear all,

I posted a response to Katrina's summary last week that got lost in the system for some reason. Here it is again...

Dear Katrina/others interested,

I've made a quick spreadsheet to show how this works. By playing around with the parameters (body mass, initial velocity and position of the CoM)
you can get a apprecation of their importance to the final curve:

I've shown the CoM as measured by kinematics for comparison.
