- Homework Statement
- A watermelon is launched into a ravine horizontally with an initial velocity of 12 m/s. A cross section of the bank has the shape of the bottom half of a parabola, with its vertex at the initial location of the projected watermelon and with the equation y^2 = 16x, where x and y are measured in meters. What are the x and y coordinates of the melon when it splatters on the bank?

- Relevant Equations
- y^2 = 16x

If I'm being completely honest, I have never done a problem where the projectile is being launched over a curved ground so I am not sure where that given equation plays a part in finding my x and y components.
