A basketball player throws the ball at a 60° angle above the horizontal to a hoop which is located a horizontal distance L = 2.8 m from the point of release and at a height h = 0.4 m above it. What is the required speed if the basketball is to reach the hoop?
I used V=V0+at and r(t)=r0+v0t+0.5a2
and V0 x/y=V0sin(θ)
