Need help finding the launch angle of a ball

• abelmoore
In summary, a ball weighing 0.8kg is thrown over a flat surface with a speed of 50m/s and is expected to land 100m away. The angle at which the ball must be thrown is not specified and the relevant equations have not been provided.

Your problem statement seems incomplete. Did you mean to say

>what angle must it be thrown at to land 100m away

And you need to show the Relevant Equations and your best try at working the problem before we can offer tutorial help. Please fix/update the problem statement and show your work. Thank you.

1. What is the launch angle of a ball?

The launch angle of a ball is the angle at which the ball is projected into the air from its starting point.

2. How is the launch angle of a ball determined?

The launch angle of a ball is determined by the initial velocity of the ball, the angle at which it is projected, and the force of gravity.

3. Why is the launch angle of a ball important?

The launch angle of a ball is important because it affects the distance and trajectory of the ball. A higher launch angle will result in a longer distance, while a lower launch angle will result in a shorter distance.

4. How can I find the launch angle of a ball?

The launch angle of a ball can be found by using a launch angle calculator, measuring the angle with a protractor, or using trigonometric functions to calculate the angle based on the initial velocity and distance traveled.

5. What factors can affect the launch angle of a ball?

The launch angle of a ball can be affected by the initial velocity, angle of projection, air resistance, and external forces such as wind or spin on the ball.
