A place kicker attempts a field goal, giving the ball an initial velocity of 30 m/s at an angle of 32 degrees with the level of the field. THe uprights are 35 m from the point at which the ball is kicked and the horizontal bar is 4.0m from the ground. a)At what time after the kick will the ball pass the goal posts? B) is the kick succesful, and by how many meters does the ball clear or pass beneath the bar.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

a) v0x=30 m/s cos(32) and v0y=30 m/s sin(32)

v0x=25.44 m/s m/s and v0y=15.89 m/s

t= 35/25.44 seconds

b) how do i aproach this lol?
