A hunter aims directly at a target (on the same level) 61.0 m away. If the bullet leaves the gun at a speed of 176 m/s, by how much will it miss the target?

At what angle should the gun be aimed so as to hit the target?

  • Physics - ,

    Dx = V*t,
    t = Dx/V = 61 / 176 = 0.347 s.

    Dy = 0.5g*t^2 = 4.9*(0.347)^2=0.589 m.=
    Miss distance.

  • Physics - ,

    b. Dx = Vo^2*sin(2A)/g = 61 m,
    (176)^2*sin(2A)/9.8 = 61,
    Divide both sides by (176)^2:
    sin(2A) / 9.8 = 1.9693*!0^-3,
    Multiply both sides by 9.8:
    sin(2A) = 0.0193,
    2A = 1.1058,
    A = 0.553 Deg.
