# Spitting cobras can defend themselves by squeezing muscles around their venom glands to squirt venom at an attacker. Suppose a spitting cobra rears up to a height of 0.520 m above the ground and launches venom at 2.50 m/s, directed 37.0° above the horizon. Neglecting air resistance, find the horizontal distance (in m) traveled by the venom before it hits the ground.
