Question: machine dynamics airborne minimum takeoff angle q a vehicle becomes...

Question details
Machine Dynamics.
“Airborne minimum takeoff angle”

Q:
A vehicle becomes airborne and travels through the air 20 feet horizontally and impacts a building 3 feet higher than where it took off. What is the takeoff angle (in degrees) that will give the minimum speed of the vehicle to achieve that airborne trajectory? (Hint: the y-axis points down (in the direction of gravity) in the derivation of the airborne formulas.)
