James Bond job is to aim at clifftop cannons at attacking vessels coming from the sea. In one practice exercise he shoots her cannon at an angle of 40 degrees, giving the cannon ball a velocity of 35m/s. If the cannon ball lands 150m from the base of the cliff, how high is James abouve the sea.

2. Relevant equations

v=vo+at

y=yo+vot+1/2at^2

y=height

3. The attempt at a solution

v=vo+at

35=(-9.8)t

t=3.57secs

y=yo+vot+1/2at^2

y=35sin40(3.57)+1/2(-9.8)3.58^2

y=17.87m
