Homework Help: Projectile Motion without the Angle

  1. Jun 7, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Hi guys, I'm trying to start from scratch on figuring out the projectile motion problem. But I think I've hit a roadblock. I am trying to solve a problem where I gave myself initial velocity and how far the object travels, but I can't seem to find a way to solve this without knowing the angle that the object was fired at.

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I've been scribbling away at this for about an hour and I don't think I've really gotten anywhere.

    oops, nevermind, figured it out

    I forgot some simple trig identities that helped me out
