Frankie shot an artillery shell at a 40 degree angle. The shell had a muzzle velocity of 230 m/s. How far did the shell go before it hit the ground?

I believe these are the knowns: X- Vxi= 230cos40 (176.19), vxi = vxf, ax=0. Y- Vyi= 230sin40 (147.84) vyf= -147.84, ay= -9.8. I used the equations vyf=vyi + at, to find t. I used Δx=vxit + .5at2. I... more
