39. We adopt the positive direction choices used in the textbook so that equations such as Eq. 4-22 are directly applicable. The coordinate origin is at the end of the rifle (the initial point for the bullet as it begins projectile motion in the sense of § 4-5), and we let θ0be the firing angle. If the target is a distance daway, then its coordinates are x= d, y= 0. The projectile motion equations lead to 00cosdv=and 0122=−vtgtsin.Eliminating
