I used an online simulation for this lab. The target is 12 m away horizontally and 6 m vertically. I was to find the velocity needed to hit the target.Since it's an online simulation, I played around with it and got 14.3 m/s. The formula I plan on using is:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Vx=range/time

Vy=√(range*10-(range/time)²)

V=√(Vx)+Vy

My problem is, how do I calculate the range and time when the target is hit? Or do I use the final range and time in the equation?

The range and time of the first black X is: 9.19 m and 1 s.

The final range and time is 21.6 m and 2.4 s.
