A monkey is hanging from a branch located exactly 24 meters along the ground from the hunter. The monkey is 14 meters above the ground. The hunter aims directly at the monkey and fires a water balloon at the monkey just as the monkey releases his grip. The balloon has an initial velocity of 40m/s.
A. How long until the balloon reaches the monkey
B. At what height above the ground will the monkey be hit by the balloon.

My answers: For A I got .695 seconds

For C I got 35.4 m/s 12.6 degrees above the ground.
Could you check my answers? Thank you!
