If a projectile is fired with an initial velocity of *v*_{0} meters per second at an angle *α* above the horizontal and air resistance is assumed to be negligible, then its position after *t* seconds is given by the parametric equations

where *g* is the acceleration due to gravity (9.8 m/s^{2}).

- (a) If a gun is fired with
*α*= 30° and*v*_{0}= 500 m/s, when will the bullet hit the ground? How far from the gun will it hit the ground? What is the maximum height reached by the bullet? - (b) Use a graphing device to check your answers to part (a). Then graph the path of the projectile for several other values of the angle
*α*to see where it hits the ground. Summarize your findings. - (c) Show that the path is parabolic by eliminating the parameter.
