Hey, I need help with a lab I'm doing in class. The goal is to hit a target on the ground by shooting a bullet from a toy gun. Our distance from the target will be assigned to us by our teacher and I need to calculate the initial velocity of the gun and then hit the target by only changing the angle or the vertical displacement. How would I go about getting the initial velocity easily and calculating the angle or vertical displacement need to hit the target. Also what would be the best angle to use. Air resistance is ignored for this entire question. Thanks.
Relevant Equations
d = v1t + 0.5at^2
My Attempt
Relevant Equations
d = v1t + 0.5at^2
My Attempt
- Get initial velocity and calculate horizontal and vertical speeds with an angle of 45
- Get time for horizontal component
- Use time in vertical component for vertical displacement
