Railguns on the roll

Classical Mechanics Level 2

A railgun is a powerful weapon which is used in tanks. It shoots with a velocity of \(750\text{ m/s}\). If the height of the tank is \(3\text{ m}\), what is the maximum height (in metres) above the ground to which a railgun can shoot?

Details and assumptions:-

  • Assume that the railgun can shoot at any angle to the horizontal.
  • Neglect the air resistance
  • Take the acceleration due to gravity(g) as \(10{\text{ m/s}}^2\).
