    not exactly. I'm trying to find the iitial velocity, while in the other problem it is given.

  • physics -

    shot putter
    initial vertical velocity Vo = 15.5 sin 34 = 8.67
    initial and always horizontal velocity U = 15.5 cos 34 = 12.9
    initial z = 2.2
    final z = 0
    acceleration = -9.8
    so
    0 = 2.2 + 8.67 t -4.9 t^2
    t = 2 seconds
    in 2 seconds it goes 12.9*2 = 25.8
