Juan throws a baseball with an initial speed of 40 m/s at an angle of 56 0 above the horizontal. Richard catches the ball at the same height that Juan threw it. How far did Juan throw the ball?

  1. the basic range equation is

    d = v^2 * sin(2Θ) / g

    v = launch velocity
    Θ = launch angle
    g = gravitational acceleration

    level surface (same height)
    no air resistance

  2. Scott you're a legend among men.

    anyone who reads this, be sure you double angle theta in sine, it took me a second to figure that out, but no worries Scott thank you so much!!!!
