Hello, simonbailyes!

A cannonball was shot out of a tower.

The cannonball left the window at a horizontal speed of 20 m/s.

The window was at a height of 45 metres.

The ground outside of the tower was perfectly horizontal.

The cannonball's mass was 6.2 kg.

Assume gravitational acceleration of 9.8 .

What horizontal distance will the cannonball travel from the tower

before hitting the ground?

You are expected to apply the "trajectory functions" and get:

. . Vertical position: .

. . Horizontal position: .

The cannon ball hits the ground when

. .

In that time, the cannonball travels a horizontal distance of:
