• An enemy ship is on the east side of a mountain island as shown in the Figure. The enemy ship has maneuvered to within 2500 m of the 1800-m- high mountain peak and can shoot projectiles with an initial speed of 250 m/s. If the western shoreline is horizontally 300 m from the peak, what are the distances from the western shore at which a ship can be safe from the bombardment of the enemy ship? v; = 250 m/s v, 1 800 m 2 500 m 300 m

Question
please show me how to do it in detail.
