1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data I have to find the degree at which im launching a water balloon and i have 2 quadratic formulas for the X and Y values versus time. The X and Y quadratic formulas for it was, X: 55.81t^2+(-2.197t)+0.5222 Y:52.62t^2+(-2.358t)+.4135 2. Relevant equations Is A the length of x or y, and for 45 degrees shouldnt it be equal? for it to equal 45 degrees? 3. The attempt at a solution Well i used a^2+b^2=C^2 and got 76.70, then i figured the angle of that side was 90 degrees so i set Sin (90)/76.70=sin (b)/52.62 and got .61 so i converted to % which is 61% but looking at the graph it didnt make much sense seeing as the length of A is greater than the Heigh (b) so wouldnt angle B, be smaller ?
