a shooter putter releases the shot some distance above the level ground with a velocity of 12.0 m s 51.0 degrees above the horizontal the shot hits the ground 2.08 s later what is the x-component of the shots acceleration while in flight?
I think you mean shotputter.
You don't need to know the time of flight, the velocity or the angle. The horizontal velocity component remains constant and the x component of acceleration is zero.
This is a "trick" question.
write down the wave equation in symbol form?
