    Projectile Velocity

    A rocket is fired at a speed of 75.0 m/s from ground level, at an angle of 66.4° above the horizontal. The rocket is fired toward an 11.0 m high wall, which is located 20.0 m away. The rocket attains its launch speed in a negligibly short period of time, after which its engines shut down and the...
