A basketball player throws a ball from a horizontal distance of 10m. The basketball is 3m from tge ground and he releases the ball from a height of 2m from the ground. If he shoots at a 40° angle with the horizontal, at what initial speed must he throw so that a ball goes through the hoop without striking the background?
