A hunter fires a dartgun with a harmless sedative at a monkey hanging from a vine a distancehvertically above the dartgun and a distancedhorizontally away from the dartgun. The hunter aims directly at the monkey and fires with an inital velocityVoat an angle theta above the x axis. But just as the hunter fires, the monket drops from the vine. Assume zero air resistance.a)find the x and y components of the initial velocity of the dart.b)find the horizontal displacement,Xdart, and vertical displacement,Ymonkey, of the monket after a timet.c)find the horizontal displacement,Xmonkey, and vertical displacement,Ymonkey, of the monkey after a timet.d)find that the condition needed for the dart to hit the monkey is tan theta = h/de)what can be inferred from (d)?

2. Relevant equations

The four equations of kinematics for constant acceleration:

1.) V=Vo+at

2.) X=1/2(Vo+V)t

3.) X=Vot+1/2at^2

4.) lVl^2= lVol^2 +2a times X

3. The attempt at a solution

I do not know how to even start this problem off, I am so confused! I need to have this done by Monday morning so any help would be greatly appreciated.
