Alright, so the corss product of two vectors will give me a vector that is perpendicular to the plane (which is in the direction that I want).
I'm not sure what these vectors would be? How do I know what vectors to cross?

I don't see what you're getting at. I know there are these two equations, I need to solve a variable deltat to get one variable left. After I try to do that step, I get a ridiculous equation that I need to solve for theta.
Is there any other process of doing this problem?
I attempted to solve for deltat, but when I plugged delta t from the 2nd equation into the first equation i get a long equation with costheta- costhetasintheta.
I'm confused
my answers don't seem to be working.
I get for the largest angle possible:
54= 27^2sin(theta)^2/ (9.8) = .8520=sintheta= 58 degrees. would that be correct for the larger angle?

(b) What is the smaller angle of elevation that...
So I'll use:
deltax = vi*t + 0.5*a*t^2.
I plug in the proper values, and I don't get the correct answer. I am unsure of where I am going wrong. The initial position is, <0,0,0>, so I don't need to worry about that.
Homework Statement
Your location is at the origin. When an object passes you, it is traveling 5 m/s in the −z direction. If the object's mass is 200 kg, and the net force on the object remains constant at ‹ 0, 0, −30 › N, what is the position of the object 20 seconds after it passes you...
Ok, So the x-component is 1e7cos(45), where the y-component is 1e7sin(45), so the hypotenuse is the vector that makes up both of these components, which allows the object to move in the direction that is 45 degrees from the horizontal.
Is that a decent understanding? Thanks for your help.

I think I figured it out. I applied one of the 4 kinematic equations, and then I should be able to get the rest from there.
