A trench mortar fires a projectile at an angle of 53° above the horizontal with a muzzle velocity of 60 m/s. A tank is advancing directly towards the mortar on level ground at a speed of 3 m/s. What should be the distance from the mortar to tank at the instant the mortar is fired in order to score a hit?
The distance from the mortar to tank at the instant the mortar is fired is (28.8m + 9.6m = ) 38.4m.
