calculate the range of the projectile using the initial speed and angle. use 9.8m/s. Initial speed 18m/s and the is 75 degrees. I came up with 8.29 is that right

  • physics -

    At the max. height, Vf = o.

    Vf^2 = Vi^2 + 2gah = o,
    (18)^2 + 2*(-9.8)h = 0,
    324 - 19.6h = 0,
    -19.6h = -324,
    h = -324 / -19.6 = 16.5m = Range.

    Your ans. is twice mine; check your math for error.
