    Another sound question

    ohh, i didnt pick up on the rearranging error. Now I get the horizontal distance to be 5619.51223. Is that right. Then if i divide that by 442.5696 (which is mach 1.5) i get 12.70, but the correct answer is 11, am i still doing something wrong? do i use taht equation?

    Another sound question

    i still get the same horizontal distance. I use tan theta = opposite/adjacent, which i rearrange to tan theta x adjacent = opposite, so tan 0.73 x 5029 = 4500.54. Is that right because i still get the wrong answer

    Another sound question

    i converted mach to meters a second but if i use 1/1.5 i get 0.73 degrees for theta. Using this i got 3171.18m for the horizontal distance. Now do i use time = distance/velocity, and if so do i keep the speed in mach or meters a second

    Another sound question

    i did that an got the angle as 0.8867. then i used tan-1 x adjacent equals opposite, which i had as the horizontal distance. Then i used time = distance/velocity but still get the wrong answer. Can you please help, am i still doing something wrong

    A Force Question

    so i have 1.64 from the first force i worked out and if i put the friction force into the work equation w= -0.2 x D i get -0.82. If I add the two works i have i get 0.82, but the answer is 1.3... can you give me hints on what I've done wrong??

    so I used this equation to y=v^2y0-v2y/2g. I rearanged it using the values i had to work out vy0, which i got 32.56, i used the distance as y and v2y as 0. Then i put that into this equation vy0=v0sin theta, to work out theta. I rearranged it to vy0/v0 sin-1 = theta, i used my value for vy0 and...

    so now i have (0.73 x mg) which is the Normal force, then i have mg as the gravitational force so if i add those together do i get ma? Then if I rrearrange m to the other side does that cancel the other m's? and is that the final answer?
