A golfer tees off on level ground, giving the ball an initial speed of 46.5 m/s and an initial direction of 37.5 above the horizontal. a) how far from the golfer does the ball land? b) the next golfer in the group hits a ball with the same initial speed but at an angle above the horizontal that is greater than 45.0. If the second ball travels the same horizontal distance as the first ball, what was its initial direction of motion?
I know for a) its 213m but i don't know how to get b, please help!

bobpursley,
Same solution, but you should have the two solutions. it should be 45+4537.5 degrees (if you think on the trig equations you get, you see why).
