Suppose we have a projectile launched from an initial height of h ft with initial speed V0 ft/sec and angle of elevation theta. We will attempt to model air resistance by assuming acceleration vector given by...

a(t)= (-.2)(V0)cos(theta)e^(-.2t)i-(.2)((V0)sin(theta)+160))e^(-.2t)j

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I know I need to integrate this equation, but I am not getting the correct value.

The teacher gave us a hint that v(0)=(V0)cos(theta) i+ (v0)sin(theta) j
