Solution: You’re trying to design a simple catapult, which is capable of firing a projectile at 50 m/s at a launch angle of 45o. If the height of the projectile is 2 m when fired from the catapult, how far will the projectile travel over flat ground?

Problem

You’re trying to design a simple catapult, which is capable of firing a projectile at 50 m/s at a launch angle of 45o. If the height of the projectile is 2 m when fired from the catapult, how far will the projectile travel over flat ground?
