During a medieval siege of a castle, the attacking army uses a trebuchet to hurl heavy stones at the castle walls. If the trebuchet launches the stones with a velocity of +35.0 m/s at an angle of 60.0°, how long does it take the stone to hit the ground? What is the maximum distance that the trebuchet can be from the castle wall to be in range? How high will the stones go? Show all your work

  • IrishBoy123 great machine - dreadful purpose. the human hamsters in the wheel lift the big weight under the axle and that stores the energy that will go into the projectile. key is, the projectile starts at ground level. that was the missing input. so now you can just use the equations of motion.
