1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A football kicker can give the ball an initial speed of 25 m/s. What are the least and greatest elevation angles at which he can kick the ball to score a field goal from a point 50 m in front of goalposts whose horizontal bar is 3.44 m above the ground? 3. The attempt at a solution I've worked it down to 3.44(cos a)^2 = 50(sin a)(cos a) - 19.6 , but I can't figure out how to solve this equation. None of the trig identities seem to help. Is this equation solvable (without a graphing calculator) or am I just approaching the problem the wrong way?
