1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data You are watching an archery tournament when you start wondering how fast an arrow is shot from the bow. Remembering your physics, you ask one of the archers to shoot an arrow parallel to the ground. You find the arrow stuck in the ground 59.0 m away, making a 3.00 degree angle with the ground. 2. Relevant equations Kinematic equations Position, velocity, and acceleration definitions 3. The attempt at a solution I've spent an hour on this problem. I know it's long and windy but any help would be great! Here has been my work so far; perhaps someone can show me where I've gone wrong (?) or if I'm even on the right track. First, I used the 3 degree angle and said that dy/dx= tan (3 degrees) when the arrow hits the ground, so dy/dx=.0524 (at time t, when the arrow hits the ground). Then I said that dx/dt is constant, since there is no horizontal acceleration. The integral of dx/dt is position, so the integral of dx/dt = 59 m. I then multiplied dy/dx by dx/dt to give me dy/dt. Since dy/dx=.0524 and dx/dt= vx, I said that dy/dt=.0524(vx). With that expression, I integrated both sides. The integral of dy/dt is dy, change in position of y. The integral of .0524(dx/dt) is .0524(dx), which is equal to .0524(59), or 3.0916. In other words, if my mathematics has been correct up to this point, THE CHANGE IN POSITION IN THE Y DIMENSION IS 3.0916. I then plugged 3.0916 into s= .5(a)t^2 and solved for t. I got .79 seconds for t. Using this, I used the same equation for change in x position. Written out, this looks like 59m= (vix)(.79s). I got vix=74.68 m/s. The answer is wrong. Can someone please help me? I have to know how to do this kind of problem. Thanks!
