Projectile Motions

1. What max. initial velocity must a rocket have to reach a target 100 mi away?

2. At what two angles above the horizontal can a projectile be fired in order to reach a distance equal to half the maximum range?

Solution Preview

The solution for the first question should be as follows,

To achieve a maximum range the person should through the ball at an angle of 45^0 (degrees). Then the maximum achievable ...

Solution Summary

Clear calculations with a Word attachment for better formatting calculate the initial velocity a rocket needs to go 100 miles, and the angles above the horizon a projectile must be fired at to go half its maximum range.
