THE HUMAN CANNONBALL – AGAIN! (2 pts)
On July 23, 1997, Washington County, in Oregon was advertising their Fair & Rodeo special attraction on the Internet: “As the countdown begins, David Smith, Jr. – THE BULLET – puts on his safety helmet, slides down the slender barrel of the cannon, positioning himself to become a human projectile. Then begins the countdown and the announcer asks the audience to cover their ears as protection from the noise of the blast. Three! Two! One! FIRE! David Smith, Jr. – THE BULLET – blasts into the air, reaching a height of 60 feet above blast off and landing safely in his pre-positioned safety net at a distance of 160 feet. This is a death-defying stunt to send shivers down your spine!”

Use the given information and assume that the tip of the cannon is at the same level as the pre-positioned safety net to find the equation of the flight of David Smith, Jr. aka THE BULLET!
