(a) $\Delta y = v_0 \sin{\theta_0} \cdot t  \dfrac{1}{2}gt^2$ $\Delta y = 35 \, m$, $v_0 = 120 \, m/s$, $\theta_0 = 30^\circ$ solve the resulting quadratic for $t$ (b) using $t$ found in part (a) ... $\Delta x = v_0 \cos{\theta_0} \cdot t$ (c) $v_{fx} = v_0 \cos{\theta_0}$ ... velocity in the $x$ direction remains constant using $t$ found in part (a) ... $v_{fy} = v_0 \sin{\theta_0}  gt$ $\theta_f = \arctan\left(\dfrac{v_{fy}}{v_{fx}}\right)$

3a) I got two answers as I used the quadratic formula, time cannot be negative so the answer I got is t=0.29s b) I got 5.36m so I rounded off to 5.4m c)1.429 degrees = 1.43 degrees

seems your calculator is in radian mode ... change to degrees

OOpsss...thank u 3a)12.29s=12.3s b)1278.25m=1278.3m c)0.58 degrees = 0.6 degrees Last edited by mayak201; April 8th, 2018 at 02:30 PM.

$0 = 35 + 60t  4.9t^2$ $a=4.9$, $b=60$, $c = 35$ $\dfrac{b  \sqrt{b^24ac}}{2a} \approx 12.8 \,sec$ (b) should be $\approx 1330 \, m$ (c) should be $\approx 32^\circ$
