2. A golf ball is hit off the tee with an initial speed of 32 m/s at an angle of 29° with respect to the horizontal.

a. What is the maximum height the ball reaches?

b. What is the speed of the ball when it reaches the highest point? (give magnitude and direction)

c. Where does the ball land? (How far does the ball travel horizontally?)
