for a free throw in basketball,find an equation for the final angle to go into the hoop in terms of y and x to the hoop and the initial angle.

I can't seem to get an equation with only those variables. I always get stuck with others like time and velocity. how do i do this?

  • physics -

    dy=(viy*t)+((1/2)ay*t^2)

  • physics -

    dy=(viy*t)+((1/2)ay*t^2)
    and same for x but replace all the y's with x
