This paper is now in two parts. In the first part a new exact solution of the plane flight of a particle is discussed, by which it is possible to take a very long first arc straight from tables of functions defined in the solution. Fairly extensive tables of these functions have been computed (42 sets of each function:- a total of 1,900 entries). Having devised a method of computation, the writer employed another to do this work, and accordingly omits them from this edition, every part of which, to the best of his belief, is original and unaided. A series solution for the lower arcs is also discussed in Part I. In Part II, solutions in finite terms of the vertical fall of a particle, an approximate solution of the plane flight, and of the effect of changing winds are given.
