A bomber is flying at an altitude of 25000 feet at a speed of 924 feet per second. When should the bomb be released for it to hit the target. Give your answer in terms of the angle of dpression theta from the plane to the target.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

to solve for the time it takes to hit the target

using the equation vtcosTi+[h+vtsinT-gt^2/2]j and taking the distance to the target to be2500/tanT and the initial velocity to be 924/cosT , using the horizontal component and substituting

2500/tanT=924t

t=2500/(924tanT) if the bomb is released at t=0 in terms of theta so the answer would be realease the bomb when t=0?
