A quarter back throws a ball 18 m/s at an angle of 35 degrees above the horizontal. Standing 18 m away is the receiver. How far does the receiver have to go and at what speed must he travel to catch the ball.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Assume that the delta Y is 0.

Assume that the receiver leaves the same time the ball is thrown.

No outside forces.
