    Number 1 and 6 from the question sheet

    I've done part a, and got an answer of 1.34. Not sure if that's right, but I posted my working in an attachment. In part B, I don't know where start.

    And for 6, do you use sin (2theta) = 2 sin(theta) cos(theta), or get some sort of quadratic.

    So yeah, help please

    for 1b)

    s = ut + ½at²

    a = 0, t = 1.34, u = 13cos27

    For 6,

    this is gonna hard to type out but whatever :

    s = ut + ½at²
    0 = (25sinθ)t + ½(-9.8)t²
    4.9t² - (25sinθ)t = 0

    s = ut
    60 = (25cosθ)t
    t = 12/(5cosθ)

    substitute your t into the equation for the vertical

    4.9t² - (25sinθ)t = 0
    4.9(12/(5cosθ))² - (25sinθ)(12/(5cosθ)) = 0
    28.224 sec²θ - 60tanθ = 0
    28.224 (1 + tan²θ) - 60tanθ = 0
    28.224tan²θ - 60tanθ + 28.224 = 0

    solve for tanθ

    tan θ = 1.423 and tanθ = 0.70623

    θ = 54.9 and 35.1 respectively
