A projectile is shot from the ground at an angle of #pi/6 # and a speed of #12 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?
The distance is
Write the equations for y(t) and x(t):
Using the t coordinate for the axis of symmetry for y(t):
The distance, d, is:
