Physics
A projectile, fired with unknown initial velocity, lands 20.8 s later on the side of a hill, 2900 m away horizontally and 411 m vertically above its starting point. (Ignore any effects due to air resistance.) (a) What is the vertical component of its initial velocity? (b) What...

physics
A projectile with mass of 139 kg is launched straight up from the Earth's surface with an initial speed vi. What magnitude of vi enables the projectile to just reach a maximum height of 5.8RE, measured from the center of the Earth? Ignore air friction as the projectile goes ...
