If a rifle is shot at a target that is 300 yards away. the bullet travels through the air at 2800 feet per second. how many feet above the target should the shooter aim to hit the bullseye?

  • Physics -

    300 yards = 900 ft
    So, the bullet gets there in 0.32 seconds.

    How far does the bullet fall in that time?
    s = 1/2 at^2
