**Homework Statement**[/B]

Hey guys, so here is my question:

A huntsman fires a gun pointing at a monkey hanging on the branch of a tree. The huntsman and the base of the tree are on a flat horizontal. At the moment the huntsman fires the gun, the monkey will release it's grip on the branch of the tree. Use the initial bullet velocity Vo, horizontal distance Dx, monkey height Dy, and inital trajectory angle above.

a)Show the monkey shouldn't have dropped

b)For what minimum bullet velocity? Vo = (Dx/cos0)(sqrt(g/2Dy))

**[/B]**

The attempt at a solution

The attempt at a solution

I know that the bullet and monkey will meet when the vertical speed of the bullet x t + 1/2at^2 is equal to h - 1/2at^2.

I also know the height of the monkey form the ground is VyoT = H

I'm now sure how to do the question only working with variables,, if I had any sort of values I could do this easily. Thank you so much guys for taking the time to work with me :).
