1. For question 5 I have resolved horizontally and vertically using the Impule equation and obtained:

k=3.5cos(theta) - 6

k=7.5sin(theta)

I'm unsure of where to go from here, I don't understand what the mark scheme has done, or should I try and find theta using trigonometric identities?

thanks

k=7.5cos(theta) - 6 Typo, I presume.

If you're following the first of the three given solutions, then they've rearranged each of the two equations to get 7.5sin(theta)=..., 7.5cos(theta)=....
Then square each and add, using the identity to elminate theta.

Your figures are slightly different as they've not combined the 0.5, but should work out the same.

I get it now thanks
4. Hi, I just gave this question a go and am stuck at

(costheta-sintheta)=12/15

I have not done c3, what should I do from here?
