Vo = 20 m/s @ 60 Deg.

a. Xo = 20*cos60 = 10 m/s.

b. Yo = 20*sin60 = 17.3 m/s.

c. Tr = (Vf - Vo) / g,

Tr = (0 - 17.3) / -9.8 = 1.77 s. = Rise

time.

Tf = Tr = 1.77 s.

Tr + Tf = Time in flight.

R = Xo * (Tr+Tf),

R = 10 m/s. * (1.77+1.77) s. = 35.4 m.

= Range.

d. h max = (Yf^2 - Yo^2) / 2g,

h max = (0 - (17.3)^2) / -19.6=15.31 m
