## Homework Statement

Golfer hits a ball with speed Vo at angle @ above the horizontal ground. angle is fixed and no air resistance what is min speed for which the ball will clear a wall of height h and distance d away. your solution will get you in trouble if angle @ is such that tan@ < h/d explain

## Homework Equations

rvac= ((2Vxo)(Vyo))/g

## The Attempt at a Solution

I just have a question, after googling range formula i found R=v^2/g sin2@ now why in my book it gave me rvac= ((2Vxo)(Vyo))/g ? could not find much info on what Vxo or Vyo stand for. There was a example and I got the same answer when i used R=v^2/g sin2@ but it never showed what the Vxo equals, they just skipped all the steps.

Thanks
