    How can you find a neat cartesian version to this parametric equation:

    x= Ut cos(theta)- (gt^2)(cot (theta))
    y= Ut sin(theta)- (gt^2)/2

    Off the top of my head try considering x\sin(\theta) and y\cos(\theta), assuming of course you only want rid of t, it ought to fall out, but it may not be neat.
