At a long distance shooting match, a bullet is fired with a muzzle velocity of 3000 feet per second from a rifle held in the horizontal position. When fired the sights of the rifle was dead center of a target. The bullet strikes the target at 4.00 ft below the center of the target. How long (in seconds) did it take for the bullet to reach the target? How far away (in unit of yards) was the target? Neglect any air resistance to the bullet. Make a simple sketch. Make a list of all given values, units, and the variables they represent. write the general form of the equation you are going to use. Insert the known values and solve.
