Just two questions:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

agent tim flying a constant 185km/h horizontally in a low flying helicopter wants to drop a small explosive onto a master cimnial's automobile travelling 145km/h on a level highway 88meters below. at what angle should the car be in his sights when the bomb is released.

The answer is listed as 61.8degrees. I cannot get this answer for the life of me....an answer and brief explanation would be very much appreciated.

another problem i'm having trouble with:

Romeo is chucking pebbles gently up to juliets window and he wants hte pebbles to hit the window with only a horizontal component of velocity. he is standing at the edge of a rose garder 8.0m below her window and 9.m from the base of the wall. how fast are the pebbles going when they hit her window?

Welll..again I can't get the answer..i could, however, if I knew the original angle it was thrown at...can I do this by using basic trig w/ the length-made triangle?

Thanks for the help.
