A flock of seagulls had decided to mount an organized response to the human overpopulation of their favorite beach. One tactic popular among the innovative radicls is bombing the sunbathers with clams. A gull dives with a speed of 16m/sec at an angle of 40 degrees below the horizontal. He releases projectile with his vertical distance above the target, a sunbather's brozned tummy, is 8.5m and scores a bull's-eye

2. Relevant equations

vi= 16m/s

thata= 40 degrees

yi= 85m

yf= 0m

xi=0m

3. The attempt at a solution

i am trying to figure out what t equals based on the y-component equation
