Hey I'm quite new to physics and am still getting my head around some equations and the correct ways to use them...(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

This question is just throwing me off because of the angle given and I don't know any formula's that include an angle.

Question is..

Steve and Mark are playing a game of backyard cricket. They set their field up so that the batsman stands 10.5metres from the point where the bowler releases the ball. Steve bowls the first ball of the match and the ball leaves his hand with a velocity of 60 km/h at an angle of 5 degrees below the horizontal. The ball is relased from a height of 2.1metres above the ground.

a) Where does the ball bounce

b) What is the speed of the ball just before it bounces?

I've drawn all the information out in a diagram just don't know what to do with it :S

Any help would be greatly appreciated..just need a point in the right direction with the equations :)

Thanks again
