(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Hey all, I'm trying to get caught up in my AP Physics class, (the book we're using is Giancoli Physics 6th Edition), so I am making notes and doing the problems at the end of the chapters. (I'm on Ch. 3 right now). I understand the concepts, but can't seem todothe problems! Here is one I am stuck on;

#53 "William Tell must split the apple atop his son's head from a distance of 27m. When William aims directly at the apple, the arrow is horizontal. At what angle must he aim it to hit the apple if the arrow travels at a speed of 35 m/s?"

2. Relevant equations

Vy=Vyo-gt

X=Xo+VxoT

3. The attempt at a solution

Well, I drew out a diagram, and drew X and Y components for the Initial velocity (35m/s), but beyond that, I'm lost. Help appreciated!
