A basketball player is standing on the floor 10.0 m from the basket as in the figure below. The height of the basket is H = 3.05 m, and he shoots the ball at an angle, θ = 37.6°, with the horizontal from a height of h = 2.20 m.
(a) What is the acceleration of the basketball at the highest point in its trajectory? [__]magnitude [downwards] direction
(b)At what speed must the player throw the basketball so that the ball goes through the hoop without striking the backboard?
