OBLIQUE THROW IN VACUUM
A body is thrown obliquely into the vacuum at an initial velocity of 100 m / s, in a direction that forms with the horizontal an angle x, such that sin (x) = 0.8 and cos (x) = 0.6. Adopting g = 10m / s², determine:
(a) the horizontal and vertical velocity component modules at the moment of launch;
(b) the instant at which the body reaches the highest point of its trajectory;
c) the maximum height reached by the body;
d) The range of the throw.
