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

An athlete puts a 16lbs shot at an angle of 45 degrees to horizontal from 6.5ft above the ground at initial speed of 44ft/sec. How far does the shot land?

g=32ft/s^2

2. Relevant equations

I can only calculated the range from the point it is fired to the point where it is 6.5 ft from the ground. But I have no clue calculating the distance travelled from the interval where it is 6.5ft above the ground to the ground(y=0).

3. The attempt at a solution

d = V0^2 sin2(45)/(32)

= (44)^2/ 32

= 60.5 ft

this is all i know. help please.
