An archer stands on a cliff that is 100m high, shooting at a mark on the ground below 430m away from the bottom of the (vertical) cliff. The archer is capable of shooting an arrow with an initial speed of 35 m/s at any angle you choose.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A) If the archer shoots horizontally ( at an angle of zero degrees with respect to the horizontal), will the arrow reach the mark? why? If not, will shooting at any angle above the horizontal help? Why or why not?

B) What initial speed of the arrow is needed to be in order for the arrow to reach the target mark ( still with an angle of zero degrees)?:rofl:
