Question Statement:-

An enemy jet is flying at a constant height of 250 m250 m with a velocity of 500 m/s500 m/s. The fighter jet passes over an anti-aircraft gun that can fire at any time and in any direction with a speed of 100 m/s100 m/s. Determine the time interval during which the fighter jet is in danger of being hit by the gun bullets.

Anti-Aircraft Marksman

Classical Mechanics Level 3

You are a soldier, and your base is under attack by enemy aircraft. At time t=0t=0, one such aircraft is positioned at (x,y,z)=(1000 m, 2000 m, 3000 m).(x,y,z)=(1000 m, 2000 m, 3000 m). The aircraft has a constant velocity of (vx,vy,vz)=(−400 m/s, +400 m/s, +400 m/s).(vx,vy,vz)=(−400 m/s, +400 m/s, +400 m/s).

Also at t=0,t=0, you take control of an anti-aircraft artillery cannon and fire a shot to bring down the enemy plane. The cannon has a muzzle velocity of 1000 m/s,1000 m/s, and it can be aimed in any direction. Your position is (x,y,z)=(0 m, 0 m, 0 m).(x,y,z)=(0 m, 0 m, 0 m).

There is an ambient gravitational acceleration of 10 m/s210 m/s2 in the −z−z direction (downward).

At what time (in seconds) does the artillery shell strike the enemy plane?

Details and Assumptions:

Neglect air resistance.

Give your answer to 2 decimal places.

From a targeting perspective, consider the enemy plane to be a point-particle.

You are a superlative marksman.

If you find more than one solution, give the smaller value (provided that it's not negative).
