(a) The first balloon launched by the Jackson team hits Walton dorm 1.8 s after launch, striking it halfway between the ground floor and the roof. Find the direction of the balloon's initial velocity. Give your answer as an angle measured above the horizontal.

x = 36 meters

y = -3.75 meters

Vox = x/t = 36/1.8

Vox = 20 m/s

Vox = VocosƟ

20 = VocosƟ

Vo = 20/cosƟ

Voy = Vo + at

y = Voyt + 0.5at2 = -VosinƟ -4.9t2

-3.75 = (20/cosƟ)sinƟt -4.9t2 <----plug in t = 1.8

-3.75 = (20)(2)tanƟ - (4.9)(3.24)

Ɵ = 16.86 degrees
