above the horizontal ground with an initial
speed of 1520 m/s.
The acceleration of gravity is 9.8 m/s2 .
Find the total time of flight of the shell,
neglecting air resistance.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0vertical is 1520sin62.7 = 1350.69819 horizontal is 1520cos62.7 = 697.14732 s=ut +1/2 at^2 therefore 1350.698t +4.9t^2 t=277.77 seconds... and then divide 697.1432/277.77 = part b Can someone tell me if this is the correct answer, or if not what I am doing wrong.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Assuming you plugged the values correctly into your calculator, that's correct. The procedure you went through is right. You need to convert from seconds to minutes, though. For part b, I assume you're looking for the total range of the projectile? In which case you need multiply the time of flight (in seconds) by the velocity.
