Consider a gun fired from a tower 96ft above the ground. The angle of elevation of the gun is 60 degrees, and its muzzle velocity is 1600 ft/sec (also gravity in this equation is 32 ft/sec^2).
a)When does the bullet hit the ground?
b)Write a parametric equation that models the path of the bullet.
c)What is the range of the gun?
d) find the equation for the bullet based on rectangular coordinates. What type of curve is this?
