A punter kicks a football at an angle of 45 degrees to the ground. The football has an initial velocity of 25 m/s, make a diagram and calculate:
a) How long was the football in the air?
b) How far does the football travel horizontally?
c) What is the maximum height of the football?

1. viy=25sin45
vix=25cos45
a)let height be zero (y=0)
you can use y=vit+1/2at2, the use quadratic formula to find t
b)after you find t in part a...use x=vixt
x will be the horizontal distance of the ball
c) vfy=0m/s
use vfy^2=vi^2+2ay
y will be the maximum height
a=g=9.8m/s^2
..
