sigh this is killing me here... ok rockets launch at 250 m/s @ an angle of 75.0 degrees. There's a mountain 2500m away from launch point that is 1800m high. There's a boat 610 m from the island. So i'm suppose to find out how much it'll clear the moutain and ...

A 100W light bulb is left on for 10hrs. Over this period of time how much energy is used by the bulb? am i doing this right? my guess is to convert 100W to kW and convert 10 hrs to seconds and multiply the 2 together? which gives 3600J or should i just leave it in watts?
