Peter is shooting arrows at a target with a bow. The target is 10m above the arrows launch point and some distance from Peter. If the arrows are shot with initial velocity Vo at 60 degrees with respect to the ground, then they will hit the target at the highest point of their trajectory. Find the initial speed of the arrows.

  1. Y^2 = Y0^2 + 2g*h
    Yo^2 = Y^2-2g*h = 0 + 19.6*10 = 196
    Yo = 14 m/s = Ver. component of initial
    velocity.

    Yo = Vo*sin60 = 14 m/s.
    Vo = 14/sin60 = 16.2m/s[60o]

    If a bow with a draw weight of 60 kilograms were to fire at someone 5 meters away but the user had to roll first before drawing back and firing two arrows. Would the target have enough time to dive for cover behind a rock?
