(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. Chuck Norris kicks a basketball from the ground into a basketball hoop, it makes it in perfectly. THe hoop is 150m away, and 6m above the ground. He kicks the ball at a 39 degree angle. How long does it take for the ball to reach the net? What was the initial velocity?

2. X1=X0+v0t+1/2at^2

3. So breaking it down, I know that Vox = v0cos(39)

And that voy= v0Sin(39

Doesn't that mean I use the tangent function? Can somebody jumpstart my memory?
