  1. Oct 6, 2011 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Q) A soldier of parachute regiment has been dropped by a plane flying at an angle 30° with -ve X-axis and at constant speed 200m/s.If the plane was at height of 3km when it dropped the soldier then find the angle of inclination with +ve X-axis a sniper situated at a distance 6km horizontally from the plane at the time of dropping must fire its bullet to hit the soldier.Assume muzzle velocity to be 300m/s. [This an entry level question I willl post more tougher ones]

    2. Relevant equations
    3 equations of motion


    3. The attempt at a solution
    y=usin30-1/2gt^2
    x=?????
