Textbook Problem

A shot fired from a gun with a muzzle speed of 1200 feet per second is to hit a target 3000 feet away. Determine the minimum angle of elevation of the gun.

To determine

**To calculate:** The angle of elevation of the gun whose range is

Explanation

**Given:**

Range of the gun is

Nozzle velocity of the gun is

And

**Formula used:**

The path followed by a projectile is described as:

**Calculation:**

The range of the shot fired is given by:

A shot is fired from the gun in a horizontal plane, so the height (

Thus, substitute the values as follows and obtain:

This gives:
