Homework Help: Math(repost)

Posted by House on Monday, October 6, 2008 at 3:26pm.

A football is kicked with an initial velocity of 42 ft/sec at an angle of 35 degrees with the horizontal. How far has the football traveled horizontally after 0.5 sec? round to nearest tenth.

Could someone explain this please?

x=t|v|cos(x)
x=t(42)cos35
x=42tcos35

y=t|v|sin(x)-1/2gt^2+h
y=t(42)sin35-1/2(32)t^2+0.5
y=42tsin35-16t^2+0.5

0.5=42tcos35
t=0.5/42cos35
t=0.00975181

I don't know, I just followed an example in my book
