# A projectile is shot at an angle of #pi/12 # and a velocity of # 6 m/s#. How far away will the projectile land?

##### 1 Answer

#### Explanation:

We treat the horizontal and vertical components of motion separately and use the fact that they share the same time of flight.

For the vertical component:

This becomes:

Since

This is the time to reach maximum height so total time of flight

For the horizontal component:

Putting

Since

Convert radians to degrees:

In future it is quicker if you can just remember equation
