“And the Rockets Red Glare . . .” Scientists at Vandenberg Air Force Base are interested in tracing the path of some newly designed rockets. They will launch two rockets at 100 feet per second. One will depart at 45 , the other at 60 . From vector analysis and gravity, you determine the following coordinates ( x , y ) as a function of time t where y stands for height in feet above the ground and x stands for lateral distance traveled. 45 60 x 100 cos(45 ) t x 100 cos(60 ) t y 16 t 2 100 sin(45 ) t y 16 t 2 100 sin(60 ) t 1. For each angle (45 , 60 ), fill in the chart (round to one decimal place). You can do this by hand (very slowly) or use the table capabilities of a calculator or similar device.
