A cannonball is catapulted toward a castle. The cannonball's velocity when it leaves the catapult is 39 m/s at an angle of 40° with respect to the horizontal and the cannonball is 7.0 m above the ground at this time.
(a) What is the maximum height above the ground reached by the cannonball?
1 m
(b) Assuming the cannonball makes it over the castle walls and lands back down on the ground, at what horizontal distance from its release point will it land?
2 m
(c) What are the x- and y-components of the cannonball's velocity just before it lands? The y-axis points up.
3 m/s (x-component)
4 m/s (y-component)
