Trajectory; The curve described by the shell in its

flight or in passing from the muzzle of

the piece to the first point of impact

_________________________________


Range ; The distance from the muzzle of the piece

to the second intersection of the trajectory with

the line of sight in plane teams this vs the

distance from the gun to the target fired at

_________________________________


Line of sight; A line passing through the sight of the

piece and the point aimed at

_________________________________


 Drawing of a diagram showing line of sight, trajectory, range, sight 


_________________________________


Tangent; In a line touching the outer circumference of

a circle without intersecting it

 Diagram of a tangent line on a circle
