William Tell must split the apple on top of his son's head from a distance of 27 m. When William aims directly at the apple, the arrow is horizontal. At what angle should he aim the arrow to hit the apple if the arrow travels at a speed of 35 m/s?
Step 1 of 2 </p>
Evidently, the arrow will follow a parabolic trajectory.
Speed at which arrow travels = 35m/s
Distance between the archer arid the apple R = 27m
Let be the angle with which the arrow is shot.
