Projectile Motion: Human Cannon Ball

For this simulation, we had to compute realistic velocities and distances for a human Cannon. The Cannon shoots at an initial velocity of 44 m/s and the person travels 200 meters in the x direction. Talk about entertainment!! With this extra special awesome human cannon, you'll have spectators coming from miles to see your show. Our TEKK engineering team calculated all of the distances and velocites to such perfection that you could not fail with this machine. The cannon shoots at a 45 degree angle and the human cannonball will be shot straight through a hoop at its peak, which is 100 meters from the cannon and 84.3 meters tall.
