A ball is tossed up in the air at an angle of 70 degrees with the horizontal and with an initial velocity of 36 ft/sec. What is the position of the ball 1 second after it is released? When will the ball hit the ground? What is the maximum height the ball will reach? How far in a horizontal direction will the ball travel?

  • Math-Trig -

    the velocity has two components:
    x: 36 cos70° = 12.31
    y: 36 sin70° = 33.83

    now recall that the x-speed is constant, and the height
    y = 33.8t - 16t^2

    now solve for the various requirements
