**Steve**, Tuesday, November 12, 2013 at 4:29amhow long does it take to fall 112m?

4.9t^2 = 112

t = 4.78 seconds

horizontal distance traveled is

4.78s * 26.2m/s = 125.26m

Rounding could account for the difference in our answers. I assume your 151° fits the equation, but it seems a bit odd to be firing backwards. Look for an acute angle that will give the same answer.
