g(t)/vox=tan(theta)(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

g= acceleration due to gravity (9.8m/s^2)

t= time

vox = initial velocity in the x direction

Where does this equation come from?? someone told me to use this to help me solve one of my hw problems and it worked but i have never seen it before and am having a hard time to figure out where the components of the equation actually come from?

could anyone help explain this equation to me?

thank you
