In a football game a kicker attempts a field goal. The ball remains in contact with the kicker's foot for 0.050 s, during which time it experiences an acceleration of 340 m/s2. The ball is launched at an angle of 51° above the ground. Determine the horizontal and vertical components of the launch velocity.
Since average a= delta v/ delta t
340(.05)= delta v
Furthermore this launch velocity has the angle of 51 degrees. You then use your handy dandy trigonometric skills to find the horizontal and vertical components of the launch velocity.
find the vertical?
