Homework Help: Projectile Motion

  1. Feb 15, 2009 #1
    Hello,

    When trying to find initial velocity in Proyectile motion can I use the formula or Range: R=Vo^2 x sin angle / Gravity

    The question is if the velocity I get through that equation will be the vector in X, Y or the resultant one?

    Thanks

    By the way, the range formula is not quite correct as written:
