maths

the rate of the fall of an object can be determined by the formula h=1/2gt^2 where h is the height, g is the acceleration due to gravity and t is time in seconds. If a gun is fired 5 feet above the ground and level to the ground, how far would the bullet travel if its velocity is 600 ms^-1 (assume no air resistance)

  1. solve for t in

    16t^2 = 5

    then plug that t into the distance

    d = 600t
