  1. May 4, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    A soccer ball is kicked so it follows the path of a projectile. It is given an initial velocity of 7.5 m/s at an angle of 25 degrees to the horizontal as it leavest he ground. What is the velocity of the ball 0.50 seconds after the ball leaves the ground?

    2. Relevant equations
    V=Vo + (a)(t)

    3. The attempt at a solution
    no clue

    Find the horizontal and vertical components of velocity. Horizontal velocity remains constant. Find the vertical velocity after time t using the relevant equation given by you. Finally find the resultant velocity by using vector method.
