Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Jeff on Thursday, June 3, 2010 at 6:42pm.

A hunter aims directly at a target (on the same level) 125m away. If the bullet leaves the gun at a speed of 227 m/s, by how much will it miss the target?

I'm not sure how to approach this problem. I know I need to find the horizontal distance traveled, probably by finding the time it takes for the bullet to fall to the earth.

However I do not know how to start this. Don't I need a height from which the bullet starts traveling?
