Two soccer players on a breakaway start from midfield and run straight down the field with a separation of d=5 m and with the same velocity v=7 m/s. The last defensive player of the other team approaches the player who has the ball, so that person decides to pass the ball with velocity u=10 m/s to their teammate. What angle in degrees with respect to their trajectory should they pass the ball at so it reaches their teammate?
