    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    A soccer ball is kicked at an angle of 64° to the horizontal with an initial speed of 18 m/s. Assume for the moment that we can neglect air resistance.
    2. Relevant equations
    For how much time is the ball in the air?..... Seconds
    (b) How far does it go (horizontal distance along the field)?..... Metres
    (c) How high does it go?..... Metres
