## Homework Statement

A cannon sends a projectile towards a target

a distance 1580 m away. The initial velocity

makes an angle 24◦ with the horizontal. The

target is hit.

The acceleration of gravity is 9.8 m/s2 .

What is the magnitude of the initial veloc-

ity?

Answer in units of m/s.

How high is the highest point of the trajec-

tory?

Answer in units of m.

How long does it take for the projectile to

reach the target? (Assume no friction)

Answer in units of s.
