**Dynamics**

A French artillerist, Captain A. Le Duc, developed an empirical formula for the velocity of a projectile in terms of the distance traveled by the projectile in the bore. For a 155-mm gun this equation is v = 3309s /(70 + s) where s is the distance traveled in the bore in ...

Neglect the gravity of the Moon, neglect atmospheric friction, and neglect the rotational velocity of the Earth in the following problem. A long time ago, Jules Verne, in his book From Earth to the Moon (1865), suggested sending an expedition to the Moon by means of a ...

**Physics**

A projectile, fired with unknown initial velocity, lands 18.4 s later on the side of a hill, 2740 m away horizontally and 469 m vertically above its starting point. (Ignore any effects due to air resistance.) (a) What is the vertical component of its initial velocity? 115.741 ...

**Physics**

We have a projectile launched upward with an initial horizontal velocity of 20 m/s and an initial vertical velocity of 30 m/s. 1. What is the actual initial speed of the projectile? 2. What happens to the horizontal component of the velocity as the projectile flies through the...

**physics**

A projectile is launched from and returns to ground level, as the figure shows. There is no air resistance. The horizontal range of the projectile is measured to be R= 166 m, and the horizontal component of the launch velocity is v0x = 26.0 m/s. Find the vertical component v0y...

**Math - Trig**

A projectile is fired with an initial velocity of 88 ft/sec at an angle of 35° to the horizontal. Neglecting air resistance, what is the time of impact? I just can't figure it out.
