A ship maneuvers to within 2500 m of an island's 1800 m high mountain peak and fires a projectile at an enemy ship 610 m on the other side of the peak, as illustrated in Figure 3-29. If the ship shoots the projectile with an initial velocity of v = 248 m/s at an angle of θ = 74°, how close to the enemy ship does the projectile land?
find time in air:
now, with that time in air.
figure that out, then since the distance to the ship is 610+2500
you can figure the distance the projectile is from the ship.
