A person is riding on a flatcar traveling at a constant speed v1= 15 m/s with respect to the ground. He wishes to throw a ball through a stationary hoop in such a manner that the ball will move horizontally as it passes through the hoop. The hoop is at a height h=4 m above his hand. He throws the ball with a speed v2= 18 m/s with respect to the flatcar. Let g=10 m/s2 and neglect air drag completely
When the ball leaves his hand, what is the direction of the velocity vector of the ball as seen from the ground? (angle αground with respect to the horizontal in degrees
