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
