    Projectile Motion on Inclined Surface Question

    Hey TSny! Thank you it was a sign error! xi = -61.07 yi = -45.80 Range = sqrt[ (-61.07)^2 + (-45.80)^2 ] = sqrt(5827.17) = 76.33. close enough Thank you both for all your help. I was really confused.

    Projectile Motion on Inclined Surface Question

    Hi TSny, thanks for the quick reply. - the 'd' in the cosd does denote that the argument is in degrees (from matlab, dunno why I included it here) - the 'i' does mean intersection. apologies. - I will look into the sign error, hopefully that fixes it.

    Projectile Motion on Inclined Surface Question

    Hi mfb, thank you for the quick response. - Oh! Yes my my coordinate system is a right handed one: x positive right, y positive up - Unfortunately, my final answer is different than the solution. ANS: Range = 76.5 meters Range = sqrt( xi^2 + yi^2) = sqrt( 17.126^2 + 12.8449^2) = 21.4 meters...
