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

Vi= 26.06 m/s

Mass= 0.5 Kg

Angle of launch= 45 degrees

time of flight= 3.61 sec

range= 64m

I need to find the force given to the projectile on the cannon during the launch, and due to the formula F=MA, I am missing A, but I have not formula to find the acceleration of launch.

2. Relevant equations

Which formula can be used to find the acceleartion of launch, and how to use it, for example calculate it with Vel in y or in x,

3. The attempt at a solution

I have tried using

Vf=Vi + AT

Vf2=Vo2 + 2ax

X=Vit + ½at^2

but each one throws different results, im not sure which one is the right to use,

any help will b appreaciated.
