A golfer launches a golf ball off a tee that has been raised 24.8 meters off the ground. If the golfer strikes the ball with a velocity of 26.5 m/s at an angle of 45.8 degrees, how far will the ball carry in the air before hitting the ground below?

  • physics -

    First solve for the time t that the golf ball is in the air.
    24.8 + 26.5sin45.8*t - 4.9*t^2 = 0
    Use the quadratic equation and take the positive root for t.
    The horizontal X distance travelled is
    X= 26.5*cos45.8*t
