A projectile is launched at 36 m/s and travels 100 m horizontally. If it is to be able to just barely clear a 10 m wall, between what two angles should the projectile be launched with respect to the horizontal?

i have almost no idea what to do!

HI

This is my take on it ..

THe projectile has to satisfies two condition

(1) Travel a range of 100 m

(2) able to clear the wall (maximum height) of 10 m

Range ,

Now maximum height ,

I don understand what it means by between 2 angles .. but the angle should be > 25.25 .
