ECOR1606 Problem Solving and Computers Page 1 of 1 Department of Systems and Computer Engineering, Carleton University Summer 2003 Assignment 1 – Cannonballs A cannon is used to fire a cannonball as shown in Figure 1. The mouth of the cannon is at a height y 0 and is considered being at a horizontal distance of zero (i.e x 0 = 0). The initial velocity of the cannonball is v 0 , with the cannonball traveling at an angle of θ from the horizontal axis. Assuming that the air resistance negligible, the only force acting upon the

Unformatted text preview: cannonball is gravity with an acceleration of a y = 9.8 m/s. θ y x y Figure 1 Write a C++ program, which obtains user inputs for y (m) v (m/s) and θ (degrees) and outputs both the time (s) and horizontal distance (m) the cannonball travels before hitting the ground (y = 0 m). Note that trigonometric functions in C++ are computed in radians not degrees! Do not forget that you may lose marks for poor style. Read the notice on the Assignment page on the website!...
