    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.
