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-
Answer in units of m/s.
How high is the highest point of the trajec-
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.
