Calculate the range of the projectile using the initial speed and angle. Use g = 9.8m/s your calculation.
Initial speed is 18m/s
Angle is 75

Help please !!

  1. Range of projectile formula:
    R = vo^2 sin(2θ) / g
    where
    θ = angle
    vo - initial velocity
    g = acceleration due to gravity = 9.8 m/s^2

    substitute the values to get the range:
    R = (18^2) * sin(2*75°) / 9.8
    R = ?

    Make sure your calculator is in Degrees mode, not Radians mode.
    Hope this helps~ `u`
