1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
Trailing by two points, and with only 2.0 s remaining in a basketball game, a player makes a jumpshot at an angle of 60° with the horizontal, giving the ball a velocity of 10 m/s. The ball is released at the height of the basket, 3.05 m above the floor. Yes! It's a score. (a) How much time is left in the game when the basket is made? 2. Relevant equations d=.5at^2 d=Vxt 3. The attempt at a solution I got this, maybe im reading the question wrong Time till at top: 0.88 s Total time: 1.76 s Maximum height: 3.82 m Range: 8.83 m I took 2sec1.76 and got .24 and its not right?
