Two platforms 50m in height have targets on them. An object succeeds in impacting with both of these.
S=ut + ½ at2 can be rearranged into the form:
½ at2 + ut – s =0
This is a quadratic equation. [ ax2 + bx +c =0 ]
Use this to calculate:
I. The times at which the bird impacts the pigs.
II. How far is each of these platforms from the catapult?
