## natasha.aries 3 years ago 27. A hunter shoots a bullet horizontally from a tree stand at a height of 6.00 meters. The bullet has an initial horizontal velocity 220.0 m/s. The bullet did not hit its intended target and struck the ground. How far did the bullet travel in the horizontal direction? A 220 m B 359 m C 268 m D 244 m

1. cesckay

i think its D.. best guess

2. cesckay

is that all thats related to the question?

3. natasha.aries

yes, the answer is D and that is all that is related to the ? how did u get that?

4. cesckay

kinematic equations.. v^2 = u^2 + 2as

5. natasha.aries

yeah thats what i was trying, i got it thanks yall!

6. natasha.aries

wait what formula did you use after that one?

7. cesckay

question is kind of blurry.. U welcome :D

8. cesckay

lol. a bullet shot out of a gun will taje the same amount of time to fall as a bullet dropped out from a gun.. so firstly, u have to find the time "t" it takes to reach its final velocity zero (0). then use kinematics to solve for the distance travelled.

9. natasha.aries

okayy cool! i got it thanks

10. natasha.aries

at least i did it some way and i got the answer

11. cesckay

Thank you! :)

12. natasha.aries

lol np

|dw:1354765692665:dw| well this problem is going to bother me for the rest of the night. I can only get a as my answer it seems, but I know this is incorrect.

14. natasha.aries

ill show u what i did then maybe it wont bother u as much! but omg thanks for spending all that time and hard work on it

15. VeritasVosLiberabit

yes if you could please show me your solution that would put my mind at ease

16. natasha.aries

17. natasha.aries

sure thing! its a bit confusing though

18. VeritasVosLiberabit

beautiful and obvious now that I see it. thanks for the solution.
