Sniper Target Practice#

A sniper is practicing their shots on a target \(h = {{ params_h }} \ \rm{m}\) high at \(d = {{ params_d }} \ \rm{km}\) away.

A gun points above a target at distance d and height h away. A straight dotted line goes from the muzzle of the gun to directly above the target. The dotted line is elevated at height e from the target.

Question Text#

If the bullet leaves the gun at \(v = {{params_v}} \ \rm{m/s}\), at what elevation \(e\) above the target should the sniper aim?
(Use the smaller angle)

Answer Section#

Please enter in a numeric value in \(m\).
