I need to find a derivation of the range formula for a projectile in the absence of air.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

i know that the range formula is Range=Vhxt

i know that Vh=vcostheta

but in having trouble understanding how V=Vo+at can be re-arranged to = 2Vsintheta/g=t where a=g=9.8m/s/s (gravity)

i know V=Vo+at can be arranged to equal V-Vo/g=t

but this is where i get stuck, i dont know how to get to V-Vo=2Vsintheta

i know that vsintheta = vertical velocity

If anyone can help it would be appreciated heaps
