A football player has to kick a ball through the uprights that are 36m away and 3.05 high. He kicks the ball at 20m/s and at an angle of 53 degrees. By how much does the ball clear or fall short of the goal?
Horizontal Range= vi2 sin 2[tex]\Theta[/tex]/ g
Height = vi2sin2[tex]\Theta[/tex]/2g
The Attempt at a Solution
Using the formulas for range and hieght, I found that the ball traveled a total of 39.23m and reached a maximum height of 13.02. The ball traveled far enough, but how do I find how high the ball was at 36m to see if there was enough height?
