highest point of projectile

02 - Bullet fired from the top of a building

Problem 02
A bullet is fired at an initial velocity of 150 m/s and an angle of 56° at the top of a 120 m tall building. Neglecting air resistance, determine the following:

  1. The maximum height above the level ground that can be reached by the bullet.
  2. The time for the bullet to hit the ground.
  3. The velocity with which the bullet will hit the ground.




01 - Highest point of projectile as measured from inclined plane

Problem 01
A projectile is fired up the inclined plane at an initial velocity of 15 m/s. The plane is making an angle of 30° from the horizontal. If the projectile was fired at 30° from the incline, compute the maximum height z measured perpendicular to the incline that is reached by the projectile. Neglect air resistance.
