A golfer hits a ball off the ground with an initial velocity of 200 ft/s at an angle of 23 degrees. The green is 750 feet away. Will the shot make it to the green? State by how much it makes or misses the green.

What is the vertical velocity?

200*sin23. ANSWER

So how long will it stay in the air?

finalvelocityvertical= initialvert - g*time g= 32ft/s^2

Here, final will be the negative of the initial. solve for time in air.

Finally:

Horizontal distance= timeinair*initialhorizontalvelcoity

where initialhorizontalvelocity is 200cos23.
