A Mortar shell fired with an angle of elevation of 52 degrees has a range of 2.1 km. Neglecting air resistance determine:

1 - The time of the flight

2 - The shell's initial velocity

3 - The shell's range and height 30s after firing

4 - The other range at which the height was the same as calculated in part (3) above.
