A pistol that fires a signal flare gives it an initial velocity (muzzle velocity) of 182 m/s at an angle of 60.7above the horizontal. You can ignore air resistance

Find the flare's maximum height if it is fired on the level salt flats of Utah.

Find the distance from its firing point to its landing point if it is fired on the level salt flats of Utah.

Find the flare's maximum height if it is fired over the flat Sea of Tranquility on the Moon, where g=1.67 m/s^2

Find the distance from its firing point to its landing point if it is fired over the flat Sea of Tranquility on the Moon, where g=1.67 m/s^2

    What is stumping you on this. Change the velocity into a vertical component,and a horizontalcomponent, and it works rather quickly.
