Physics

A rifle aimed horizontally at a target fired a bullet which lands 2 cm below the aim point. If the rifle was 25 m away find a) the flight time and b) the velocity with which the bullet left the rifle.

I would first have to convert the 2 cm into m but what would be the equations i would use?

See the other post. Here, Theta is zero.

  1. A rifle is aimed horizontally at a target 46.0 away. The bullet hits the target 1.60 below the aim point.
    What was the bullet's flight time?
    What was the speed of the bullet as it left the barrel?
