A)What is the speed of the ball just before it strikes the ground?

B)What is the answer for part A) if the initial velocity was directed at an angle of 50.9 degrees below the horizontal?

**drwls**, Tuesday, March 13, 2012 at 1:53amA) The horizontal velocity component will remain

Vx = 13.1 cos 50.9

and the vertical component will increase so that

Vy^2 - (13.1 sin 50.9)^2 = 2 g H

where H is the height of the building.

B) You will get the same answer, since the (13.1 sin theta)^2 term is squared in the Vy equation, and cos theta = cos(-theta)
