## Homework Statement

A football receiver running straight downfield at 5.5m/s is 10m in front of the quarterback when a pass is thrown downfield at 25 degrees above the horizon. If the receiver never changes speed and the ball is caught at the same height from which it was thrown find initial velocity of the football, the amount of time it spends in the air, and the distance between the quarterback and receiver when the catch is made.

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

I drew a diagram, found Vx=Vo*cos theta and Vy=Vo*sin theta. I also came up with the equations t=Vo*sin theta/ 9.81m/s^2 and t/2=delta x/ Vo*cos theta. Am I on the right track?
