I'm getting really frustrated here. I've tried every solution there is to get the angle between two objects

and I get some angles that don't correspond to anything, or indicate any relationship of positioning.

function angleCalc (x1:Number, y1:Number, x2:Number, y2:Number):Number

{

var dx:Number = x2 - x1;

var dy:Number = y2 - y1;

var j:Number = Math.atan2(dy,dx) * Constants.RADIANS_TO_DEGREES;

return j;

}

var targetAngle:Number = angleCalc(car.GetPosition().x * Constants.PIXELS_TO_METRE,

(car.GetPosition().y * Constants.PIXELS_TO_METRE) - 20,

bombObject.body.GetPosition().x * Constants.PIXELS_TO_METRE,

bombObject.body.GetPosition().y * Constants.PIXELS_TO_METRE);

The angle ends up making no sense, being the opposite of where it's supposed to be.

I convert the angle to a vector and impulse it

var impulse = new b2Vec2(Math.cos(targetAngle) * 30, Math.sin(targetAngle) * 30);

ball.body.ApplyForce(impulse, ball.body.GetWorldCenter());

This is probably a failure of Flash, it fails it so many ways.
