Given this image,

enter image description here

where a golf player throws a ball with a angle of 54.0° above horizontal and a speed v₀=13.5 m/s. Looking this excellent old answer Sketching a graph mapping projectile motion using LaTeX of the user @Mark Wibrow

enter image description here

with the complete code:

\documentclass[tikz,border=5]{standalone}
\usepackage[prefix=]{xcolor-material}
\begin{document}
\begin{tikzpicture}[x=(330:1cm),y=(30:1cm),z=(90:1cm)]
\fill [LightGreen] (-1,-1,0) -- (-.5,1,0) -- (11,2,0) -- (11,-2,0) -- cycle;
\fill [Green] (9,0,0) circle [x radius=1.5, y radius=1];
\fill [black] (10,0,0) circle [x radius=.1, y radius=.1];
\draw [Brown, thick, line cap=round] (10,0,0) -- (10,0,1);
\fill [Red] (10,0,1) -- (9.8,0,0.9) -- (10,0,0.8) -- cycle;
\fill [Yellow, shift={(7,0,0)}] 
  plot [domain=0:340, samples=20, smooth cycle, variable=\t] 
    (\t:rnd/16+0.25 and rnd/8+0.75);
\foreach \a [evaluate={\v=70; \T=\v*sin(\a)/9.807*2;}] in {10, 20, ..., 80} {
  \draw [x=(330:0.5pt), z=(90:0.5pt), Black, dashed]
    plot [smooth, domain=0:\T, samples=50, variable=\t] 
      (\v*\t*cos \a, 0, -9.807/2*\t^2+\v*\t*sin \a +0.1016) coordinate (end);
  \fill [White] (end) circle [radius=1pt];
}
\end{tikzpicture}
\end{document} 

Starting from the equation of the common trajectory

y=(tan α)x-[1/(2gv₀²cos²α)]x²

is it possible

  • to add the x-axis and the y-axis with the tick marks (and the labels)?
  • to have the balls of golf very closer near the hight height with below the dashed black line (or continue line) of the trajectory, like the start image?

EDIT:

I have changed a bit the code of the vanish OP....

\documentclass[tikz,border=5]{standalone}
\usepackage[prefix=]{xcolor-material}
\begin{document}
\begin{tikzpicture}[x=(330:1cm),y=(30:1cm),z=(90:1cm),
    declare function={v=70;% <- velocity (input)
        alpha=30;% <- angle (input)
        h=2*v*sin(alpha)/9.807;}]
\fill [LightGreen] (-1,-1,0) -- (-.5,1,0) -- (11,2,0) -- (11,-2,0) -- cycle;
\fill [Green] (9,0,0) circle [x radius=1.5, y radius=1];
\fill [black] (10,0,0) circle [x radius=.1, y radius=.1];
\draw [Brown, thick, line cap=round] (10,0,0) -- (10,0,1);
\fill [Red] (10,0,1) -- (9.8,0,0.9) -- (10,0,0.8) -- cycle;
\fill [Yellow, shift={(7,0,0)}] 
  plot [domain=0:320, samples=40, smooth cycle, variable=\t] 
    (\t:rnd/16+0.25 and rnd/8+0.75);
  \draw [x=(330:0.5pt), z=(90:0.5pt), White, dash pattern=on 0.1pt off 4pt, double, double distance=1pt, line cap=round]
    plot [smooth, domain=0:h, samples=50, variable=\t] 
      ({v*\t*cos(alpha)}, 0,{-9.807/2*\t*\t+v*\t*sin(alpha)+0.1016}) 
      coordinate (end);
  \fill [White] (end) circle [radius=2pt];
\end{tikzpicture}
\end{document} 

but I am not able to put the trajectory, the distance between the balls, and the axis with the labels that it is appear like a 3D-drawing.

Two major changes:

  • lines that draw the two axes as well as the origin and
  • some <mark options> used in \draw plot[..., <mark options>] that draw the (equally x-spaced) balls of golf.

  • Great! And very beautiful....Why I not able to make the same thing :-((( ? I have understood your code....and I wait some days....for the bounty :-)....Great...all the best and thank you very much for my advice.

  • In this question there is also the grass....tex.stackexchange.com/questions/495200/… I can put it and where?

    @Sebastiano For a 2d plot, grass effect is added on a straight line. For a 3d plot, it seems the grass effect should be added to a slanted rectangle, which I currently have no idea. Can you provide some sketch? Nov 10 '20 at 19:50

    @Sebastiano Such grass effect (various random plots in random color) in the form of vector graphics is, some sort of show off. I will try. Nov 10 '20 at 20:44

    @Sebastiano To be honest, I still have no idea about how to draw a simple but vivid grass effect in a slanted rectangle. Try filling the area with some grass image as a workaround? Nov 16 '20 at 23:42

The code you post answers almost all questions, at least the way I interpret them. All I did was to store v and alpha in "functions" and to use some double line trickery to get a different representation of the trajectory.

\documentclass[tikz,border=5]{standalone}
\usepackage[prefix=]{xcolor-material}
\begin{document}
\begin{tikzpicture}[x=(330:1cm),y=(30:1cm),z=(90:1cm),
    declare function={v=70;% <- velocity (input)
        alpha=30;% <- angle (input)
        T=2*v*sin(alpha)/9.807;}]
\fill [LightGreen] (-1,-1,0) -- (-.5,1,0) -- (11,2,0) -- (11,-2,0) -- cycle;
\fill [Green] (9,0,0) circle [x radius=1.5, y radius=1];
\fill [black] (10,0,0) circle [x radius=.1, y radius=.1];
\draw [Brown, thick, line cap=round] (10,0,0) -- (10,0,1);
\fill [Red] (10,0,1) -- (9.8,0,0.9) -- (10,0,0.8) -- cycle;
\fill [Yellow, shift={(7,0,0)}] 
  plot [domain=0:340, samples=20, smooth cycle, variable=\t] 
    (\t:rnd/16+0.25 and rnd/8+0.75);
  \draw [x=(330:0.5pt), z=(90:0.5pt), Black, dash pattern=on 0.1pt off 4pt,
    double,double distance=2pt,line cap=round]
    plot [smooth, domain=0:T, samples=50, variable=\t] 
      ({v*\t*cos(alpha)}, 0,{ -9.807/2*\t*\t+v*\t*sin(alpha)+0.1016}) 
      coordinate (end);
  \fill [White] (end) circle [radius=1pt];
\end{tikzpicture}
\end{document}
