Homework Help: Projectile motion

  1. Oct 14, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    0.25-kg skeet is fred at an angle 30 to horizontal with a speed 25m/s.
    when it reaches tha max. height, it is hit from below by a 15g pellet travelling verticaly upwared at speed of 200m/s. the pellet is embedded to the skeet.
    1) how much higher did the skeet go up?
    2) how much extra horizontal distance?

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    at highest v=0
    vsin 0 is the speed of skeet
    horizontal range should be v times t

    Welcome to PF!

    Hi wing_88! Welcome to PF! :wink:
    Nooo. :redface:

    Anyway, start by considering what is conserved at the time of collision … then what is the equation for that? :smile:
