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

A projectile is fired into the air from the top of a 200-m cliff above a valley. It's initial velocity is 60 m/s at 60 degrees above the horizontal. Where does the projectile land?

2. Relevant equations

delta x = intial velocity of x * t

delta y = -.5*g*t

3. The attempt at a solution

I solved for time and got 6.39s. When I put this back in for delta x I get 191.7m. However according to my professor the results should be .41km. Any ideas? Thanks!
