A golf ball is hit with an initial velocity of 135 feet per second at an angle of 22 degrees above the horizontal. Will the ball clear a 25 foot wide sand trap whose nearest edge is 300 feet from the golfer?

Will be through with all the word problems soon. I have managed to actually work some on my own!

Thanks.
