Artillery's Range Problem An artillery shell is fired at an angle of 30° with respect to the horizon with an initial velocity of 760 m/s. Find the range of the artillery shell.


Solution Place the origin at the bottom of the cannon. Define horizontal as the xdimension with negative to the left and vertical as the ydimension with negative downward. 



Conclusion and Significance Typically, artillery crews would be able to measure the range to the target with a range finder. They would have to find the correct angle. these physics are more complex.
