# Thread: finding the initial minimum velocity....

1. ## finding the initial minimum velocity....

ok so the problem is this...

a projectile is fired from ground level at an angle of 12 degrees with the horizontal. the projectile is to have a range of 200 ft. what is the initial minimum velocity?

i dunno if i did this right, but i got V(o)*cos(12) = 200 ft and solved for V(0)? so V(0) = 204.468 ft/s is this right? can someone check and see if i did this right? it seems too easy....
