How to solve for velocity given angle and distances?

  1. Sep 2, 2007 #1
    how do i solve for the necessary velocity when the horizontal and vertical distances to be cleared are given and there is an angle involved?

    thank you

    use those simple kinematics equations, and solve the unknown vars!

    v[y] = v.sin(p).t-0.5gt^2
    v[x] = v.cos(p).t
