Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Kristina on Thursday, December 18, 2008 at 9:06pm.

This is a projectile motion problem where I need to find the velocity and angle I launch a ball at to hit a ship. The ball is on a cliff 400 m high, and the ship is 250 m away from the cliff. The ship is moving away at a velocity of 40 m/s. What velocity and angle should I launch the ball at so it hits the ship? And how do i solve this? Thank you.
