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)
without knowing how hard he hits the ball, there's no way to tell. Was it a mere tap? A hard spike?
