Joe is analyzing a video tape of a recent world cup soccer game and made a sketch. According to the diagram what is the launch velocity of the soccer ball?

The sketch shows 2 soccer players standing 17m apart. The player standing on the left kicks the ball and it makes an angle of 40 degrees. On the right, a player is standing in front of a goal post that is 2.2 m tall.

a=acceleration

d=distance

vf= final velocity

vi=initial velocity

t=time

I know i have to split it up into a y section and an x section.

So this is what i have so far

ay=9.8

ax=0

dx=17m

vix= missing velocity x cos40

viy= missing velocity x sin40
