2 and 4 are correct as are others using 0.15 for initial velocity up. However I am quite sure that was not the intent because the velocity is so low it makes little sense and the shot hardly gets above the hand.

Physics typo ?
you seem to have both 15 and .15 for the velocity. Compromise at 1.5 maybe?

Let's assume the acceleration, a , is constant then the force is constant F = m a work = integral of force dx from low speed to high speed which is force * (Xend - Xbegin) because F is constant so we need to know x begin and x end let x begin be 0 then d^2x/dt^2 = a dx/dt...

agree with Reiny. Note the problem here is really not the algebra but the problem of keeping significant figures when subtracting numbers that are close to each other. However, you must start by doing the algebra correctly :)

800 tan 33 = x(tan 35-tan 33) The problem here is not doing the algebra which is easy, but keeping the accuracy which is hard. When you subtract numbers that are close to each other, you lose significant figures in your calculation. What we need to do is find an accurate way ...
