A hunter aims directly at a target (on the same level) 120 m away.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

(a) If the bullet leaves the gun at a speed of 300 m/s, by how much will it miss the target?

(b) At what angle should the gun be aimed so the target will be hit?

Im havin a little trouble here. I think you are supposed to find how far it goes horizontally. But how can you find this, when you don't know how high they are?
