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

Using these two equations of (1) Dx=(Vox)t and (2) Dy= -(1/2)gt^2 I have to find an expression of Dy as a function of Dx

Vox = initial component of velocity at time =0

Dx = Distance traveled horizontally

Dy= Distance traveled vertically upward

2. Relevant equations

Dx=(Vox)t and Dy= -(1/2)gt^2

3. The attempt at a solution

I rearranged equation (1) to get time; t=Dx/Vox and used this in equation (2) to substitute for t and coming up with the equation Dy = -g(Dx^2/Vox^2/2. I'm not quite sure I did this right any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance!
