Suppose a fixed cannon is to fire a projectile at an enemy tank, which is moving toward the cannon at a speed of 15 mph. If the cannon is to fire at the moment the tank is 3 miles from the cannon and the muzzle speed of the cannon is 1100 mph, what is the correct equation to determine the firing angle if acceleration is 79000 m /h^2?

Answer: (10.2cos(theta) + 0.139) sin(theta) = 1
