Dwight Howard is playing center for the Los Angeles Lakers. During the game, he blocks a shot. When Howard blocks the ball, he is 12 feet off of the ground (including his height). The ball is hit down at an angle of depression of 63°. Find the distance that the ball travels away from the basket. (Round to the nearest hundredth)
Trigonometry - incomplete -
without knowing how hard he hits the ball, there's no way to tell. Was it a mere tap? A hard spike?
