a golf ball is hit with an initial speed of 35 m/s at an angle less than 45 degress above the horizontial (a) the horizontial velocity componant is (1)greater than (2)equal to or (3) less than the vertical velocity componant. Why? (b)If the ball is hit at an angle of 37 degress , what is the initial horizontial and vertical velocity componants?

  1. (a) The initial vertical component is 35 sin theta and the initial horizontal component is 35 cos theta. The ratio is tan theta. Is this greater than or less than 1 when theta is less than 45 degrees? You figure it out.

    (b)The formulas you need are provided above.
