A gun shoots a bullet with a velocity of magnitude 409 m/s. The goal is to hit the target 1,290 meters away. How high above the target must you aim to correct for gravity? (Assume the gun and target are at the same height)(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have attempted solving it but I am stuck at the point below:

D*Tan A = (g/2)(D/Vo)^2(Cos A)^2

where,

D=1290 m

Vo= 409 m/s

I think Tan A is the solution but i do not know how to get to that point
