The free throw line in basketball is 4.57 m (15ft) from the basket, which is 3.05m (10ft) above the floor. A player standing on the free throw line throws the ball with an initial speed of 7.15 m/s, releasing it at a height of 2.44m (8ft) above the floor. At what angle above the horizontal must the ball be thrown to exactly hit the basket?

2. Relevant equations

I think i will use

sin(2theta)= Rxg/iv
