Projectile



A rock is thrown off a cliff of height h = 30 m with a speed of vo = 50 m/s and at an angle of theta = q = 60° above the horizontal. How far from the base of the cliff will the rock go in the horizontal direction before it hits the ground?

Note: use the magnitude of acceleration due to gravity to be 9.8 m/s2.

D = meters
