Question 1 (1 point)
Using the evidence provided, complete all calculations necessary to conclude which window the shooter fired from. E-mail these calculations to your teacher and wait for feedback. Then make any necessary corrections before moving on to Part 2.
Question 1 options: Hint: Complete the diagram with the given information found in the Police and Ballistics Reports. Then express the height that the bullet is fired from in terms of the bullet’s angle of entry and the angle W. Use this as a starting point to determine which window the gun was fired from.
NOTE: This is a 3d diagram. The building is perpendicular to the ground. Triangle VGH is on the plane of the ground. VGH shares a side with the building which is perpendicular to the ground.
There is a solution on course hero but it is wrong because the line HG doesn’t go all the way straight to the bottom.
