A hunter aims directly at a target (on the same level) 120 m away.?
(a) If the bullet leaves the gun at a speed of 250 m/s, by how much will it miss the target?

(b) At what angle should the gun be aimed so as to hit the target?

• physics -

How long does it take for the bullet to go 120 meters?
How much does the bullet fall in that time?

b) tanTheta=falling distance/120

• physics -

got it 1.13m and .54 degrees.

• physics -

correct
