You serve a tennis ball from a height of 2.29 m above the ground. The ball leaves your racket with a speed of 18.7 m/s at an angle of 6.55° above the horizontal. The horizontal distance from the court's baseline to the net is 11.89 m, and the net is 1.07 m high. Neglect spin imparted on the ball as well as air resistance effects. Does the ball clear the net (= positive answer)? If yes, by how much? If not, by how much did it miss? In that case the answer will be negative.
