Distance Between Projectiles

CLMECH-YLX4G0

Two projectiles are launched from the same point at the same time. Projectile $A$ is launched vertically upward and projectile $B$ at the angle of $50^o$ with respect to the horizontal. The initial speed, $v_o$, of each projectile is 22 m/s.

Neglecting air resistance, find the distance between the projectiles 1.2 s after they are launched.

A

18 m

B

12 m

C

19 m

D

22 m
