Hi,

I have this question I've been asked.

Scenario 1:
A sniper has to take a long range shot acroos a flat field

Scenrio 2:
The sniper has to shoot along a path going uphill at an angle (alpha).

Which of the two bullets will travel further? (take into consideration energy conservation)

If this one was too easy for you you can add to that the fact that the scope on the rifle is arranged at a 50 angle more than the barrel.
