In a football game a kicker attempts a field goal. The ball remains in contact with the kicker's foot for 0.050 s, during which time it experiences an acceleration of 340 m/s2. The ball is launched at an angle of 47° above the ground. Determine the horizontal and vertical components of the launch velocity.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

**I tried using the equation:

x=VoxT + 1/2axT^2 and setting the inital velocity of the X component to zero, but that didn't work. I am so stuck on how to do this problem in the slightest bit! Please help!
