A baseball is thrown with an initial velocity of magnitude v at an angle of 21.8 with respect to the horizontal (x) direction. At the same time, a second ball is thrown with the same initial speed at a different angle A with respect to x. If the two balls land at the same spot, find angle A.

The range is

X = (V^2/g)*sin(2A)

where A is the angle measured abouve horizontal.

You get the same value of sin2A, and range, if 2A is 43.6 or 136.4 degrees.

Therefore the two angles A are

21.8 and 68.2 degrees. The two angles are complementary.
