Assume: A 78 g basketball is launched at an angle of 56.8◦ and a distance of 10.4 m from the basketball goal. The ball is released at the same height (ten feet) as the basketball goal’s height. A basketball player tries to make a long

jump-shot as described above. The acceleration of gravity is 9.8 m/s^2. What speed must the player give the ball?

Answer in units of m/s
