i'm having a lot of trouble with these problems -> can someone help me?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1.) A diver dives from the edge of a swimming pool and lands in the pool 5.7 m away 0.82 seconds later. With what speed did the diver dive? at what angle? Assume the diver lands at the same height he started from.

2.) A 2m tall basketball player shoots a ball at an angle of 51 degrees from horizontal. He released the ball even with the top of his head. It passes through the rim (3.05 m above the floor) 1.1 seconds later. How far was the player from the basket?

Thanks!
