1) A shell is fired from a mortar over level terrain. The firing speed is 52 m/s and the mortar is aimed 63° above the horizontal. Find the range of the shell.

  • Physics -

    Range = [Vo^2 sin(2A]/g

    2A = 126 degrees in this case

    Try deriving the formula and it will help you learn the subject better. You can also find proofs onllne.
