Ok, in this problem a ball with velocity 10m/s flys off the horizontal edge of a canyon, the equation for the canyon is y^2=16x and it wants you to find the x,y cordinates where the ball hits it. I turned the balls motion into a a function of x for y and then set that equal to y=Sqrt(16x) but I can't solve it. It is an easy problem the book says but I can't do the math, or perhaps its my method, to figure it out. Thanks alot for any help.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
