Homework Help: Projectiles (Physics)

Posted by Soph on Wednesday, October 3, 2012 at 5:40pm.

Joe is analyzing a video tape of a recent world cup soccer game and made a sketch. According to the diagram what is the launch velocity of the soccer ball?

The sketch shows 2 soccer players standing 17m apart. The player standing on the left kicks the ball and it makes an angle of 40 degrees. On the right, a player is standing in front of a goal post that is 2.2 m tall.

vf= final velocity
vi=initial velocity

I know i have to split it up into a y section and an x section.

So this is what i have so far

vix= missing velocity x cos40
viy= missing velocity x sin40
