Hi I have a classical projectile problem:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Car moving west at 50mph. If I am south ten miles and wish to his the object with a canon traveling at 500mph

i) What bearing should I shoot at?

ii) What pitch?

Thanks

Jo

2. Relevant equations

for projectile

x=(Vo cos (Picth)) t

y=(Vo sin(Pitch)t - 1/2 g (t*t)

3. The attempt at a solution

I got a bearing of 32 degrees (with North as 0 obviously) and a pitch 0f 47 degree.

Is this correct?
