1. Problem a basketball player is standing 9.5m from the basket which is at a height of 3.1m. She throws the ball from an initial height of 2.0m at an angle of 35 degrees above horizontal. The ball goes straight through the basket. Find v initial 2. Equations Any range / Kinematic equations 3. My work I tried separating the problem into x and y components, then used -2 = Vi sin 35 + (1/2) * g * t^2 and dx = Vi cos 35 * t But this kept giving me incorrect answers.
