A person who is 1.1 m tall throws a ball with a speed of 3.5 m/s at an angle of 52 degrees above the horizontal. What are the x and y components of the velocity (in m/s) of the ball the instant before it strikes the ground? The acceleration due to gravity is 10 m/s2

  • Physics -

    Vo = 3.5m/s @ 52o
    X = 3.5*cos52 = 2.15 m/s.
    Y = 3.5*sin52 = 2.76 m/s.
