A basketball player who is 2.00 m tall is standing on the floor L = 8.0 m from the basket, as in Figure P4.54. If he shoots the ball at a 30.0° angle with the horizontal, at what initial speed must he throw so that it goes through the hoop without striking the backboard? The basket height is 3.05 m.
The Attempt at a Solution
Vo (cos 30)=8
t=square root (6.95/4.9)
However, this is wrong...any suggesions??
