A ship is traveling at a speed of 20 knots. (A knot is a nautical mile per hour, a nautical mile being approximately 1.1516 statute mile of 5280 feet each.) When directly opposite a target it fires a gun whose projectile has a velocity of 2000 feet a second. At what angle with the direction of motion of the ship must the gun be pointed in order to hit the target?
