Problem Details

A fire hose held near the ground shoots water at a speed of 6.5 m/s .

At what angle(s) should the nozzle point in order that the water land 2.5 m away?

Why are there two different angles?

Sketch the trajectory for the 18 angle. Plot points starting at x = 0 m in 0.5 m increments and at the highest point of the trajectory.

Sketch the trajectory for the 72 angle. Plot points starting at x = 0 m in 0.5 m increments and at the highest point of the trajectory.
