A catapult on a cliff launches a large round rock towards a ship from a H of 33.0 m above sea level, directed at an angle above the horizontal with an unknown speed v(0). The projectile remains in flight for 6.00 seconds and travels a horizontal distance D of 169 m. Assuming that air friction can be neglected, calculate the value of the angle (in degrees).

The solution explains and calculates the solution. The expert calculates the value of an angle in vectors.

Solution Preview

Let the projectile is launched at an angle Q(read as theta) with the horizontal and velocity u (==v(0))
First in horizontal direction:
initial velocity = u*cos(Q) = constant
=> u*cos(Q) = D/T
D is the horizontal distance travelled and T is the time of ...
