I am having some trouble with projectile motion, I do fine when I have all of the variables such as initial velocity, and angle, and say I want to find the range. That's great, I use y = voyt - 1/2 gt^2 where y = 0 to find the time, since voy = vo sin theta, and r = voxt where vox = vo cos theta. But I am having trouble when problems are taking the velocity or angle away.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Such as...theta is 35, range is 4m, find the initial velocity... something along those lines. I get horribly stuck because now I "can't" find voy, or vox, etc. Would anyone mind helping? Thanks!,

-Mike
