In this problem, we apply the concepts in projectile motion to describe the motion of a projectile.
Uniform accelerated motion (UAM) equations, a.k.a. "kinematics equations":
A ball is thrown horizontally from the top of a cliff with initial speed v0 (at t = 0). At any moment, its direction of motion makes an angle θ to the horizontal. Derive a formula for θ as a function of time, t, as the ball follows a projectile path.
