# A projectile is shot from the ground at an angle of #pi/12 # and a speed of #2 /3 m/s#. Factoring in both horizontal and vertical movement, what will the projectile's distance from the starting point be when it reaches its maximum height?

##### 1 Answer

Split this into two parts, horizontal and vertical

#### Explanation:

The initial velocity will be split into both horizontal and vertical components. For horizontal,

So, for you

Then, as soon as it launches, gravity will take over, so there will be an acceleration of

use equations

For y:

t=?

d=?

For x:

t= the same time for y

d=?
