A ball is thrown from a building standing 30m high, landing 10m away from the building 3.2 seconds after it was thrown. Find the angle above the horizontal and the initial velocity of the ball

  • Physics -

    0 = 30 + Vi (3.2) - 4.9 (3.2)^2

    Vi = 6.31 up

    10 = u (3.2)
    u = 3.13

    tan theta = 6.31/3.13
    theta = 63.6 degrees up from horizontal

    speed = sqrt(3.13^2 + 6.31^2)
    = 7.04
