Solution Summary

William Tell problem is investigated.

Solution Preview

Note that 35 m/sec is only the initial speed of the arrow. When the arrow is fired at angle B above the horizontal, it has a changing upward speed, due to the downward force of gravity, and has a constant horizontal speed since the net horizontal force is zero.

For V = 35 m/sec at ...
