A rifle is aimed horizontally at the centre of a large target 200m away. The initial speed of the bullet is 500 m/s.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

(a) Where does the bullet strike the target?

(b) To hit the centre of the target, the barrel must be at an angle above the line of sight. Find the angle of elevation of the barrel.

What does (a) mean actually? And can anyone draw out the diagram ? Thanks.
