If you want to plot in 2-D, you can plot a family of curves.

Needs["Graphics`Legend`"]

fp[pp_, vel_] := (pp*vel^2)/450240;

Plot[Evaluate[Table[fp[pp, vel], {pp, 7.8, 10.5, .3}]], {vel, 780, 940},
Frame -> True, Axes -> False,
FrameLabel ->  {"\nVelocity (vel, ft/sec)",
"Energy (fp)\n"},
PlotStyle -> Table[Hue[(x - 7.5)/3], {x, 7.8, 10.5, .3}],
PlotLegend ->
Prepend[Table[
"  =" <> ToString[
NumberForm[x, {3, 1}, NumberPadding -> {" ", "0"}]], {x, 8.1,
10.5, .3}], "pp = 7.8"], LegendPosition -> {1.1, -.65},
LegendSize -> {.5, 1.4}, LegendLabel -> "Pellet Weight\n(pp, grains)",
Epilog -> {Text["fp = (pp * vel^2)/450240",
Scaled[{.05, .8}], {-1, 0}]}, ImageSize -> {500, 300}];
