(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A 2.00-m tall basketball player is standing on the floor 10.0 m from the basket. If he shoots the ball at a 40 degree angle from the horizontal, at what initial speed must he throw the ball so that it goes through the basket without striking the backboard? The height of the basket is 3.05 m.

2. Relevant equations

Y=Vi t + 1/2 g t^2

V^2 = + 2 g Y

Those are my best guesses, but I'm not entirely sure.

3. The attempt at a solution

I don't even know where to begin.
