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

When the dried-up seed pod of a scotch broom plant bursts open, it shoots out a seed with an initial velocity of 2.64 m/s at an angle of 30.0˚ below the horizontal. The seed pod is 0.465 m above the ground.

How long does it take for the seed to land?

What horizontal distance does it cover during its flight?

2. Relevant equations

Voy=Vsin[tex]\theta[/tex]

Vox=Vcos[tex]\theta[/tex]

h = y0 + v0*t + 1/2 * a * t^2

d= Vox*t

3. The attempt at a solution

I used Voy=2.64*sin30˚, Vox= 2.64cos30 I plugged everything into these equations, solved for t using the quadratic equation, and I got t=0.4723 but that was wrong
