(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A fire hose held near the ground shoots water at a speed of 6.5 m/s. At what angle(s) should the nozzle point in order that the water land 2.0m away. Why are there two different angles?

2. Relevant equations

v=v0 +at v^2=v0^2 +2ad d=V0t+1/2at^2

3. The attempt at a solution

I'm not sure how to go about solving this. I've gotten as far as this (calling the angle x)

Vy = Vosinx and Vx = Vocosx

Any help would be much appreciated, I don't understand where to go from here. It seems like none of the equations are going to go anywhere.

Thank you very much for your time...
