I'm having problems setting up an equation to solve for time t in a projectile motion problem. What is given is horizontal position, accerlation due to gravity, the initial speed with, the angle, and the vertical position related to speed. I'm suppose to find y veritcal position and t time.
I know to find y I could use
y = vyo(t) + ayt^2/2

    and, you have a horizontal equation. I can't help without reading the quesion.

  • Physics -

    yo = 10 m vo= 10 m/s angle = 45 degrees has to be changed to radians, x = 16.4 m

    Theres wasn't a lot of information given. Solve for t and y.

    First, you will investigate purely vertical motion. The kinematics equation for vertical motion (ignoring air resistance) is given by y(t)=y0+v0t−(1/2)gt2, where y0=0 is the initial position (which is 1.2 m above the ground due …
