**1. Homework Statement**

1)A basketball player tries to make a half-court jump-shot, releasing the ball at the height of the basket. Assuming the ball is launched at 53.0°, 13.5 m from the basket, what velocity must the player give the ball?

2)A baseball is hit at 32.0 m/s at an angle of 52.0° with the horizontal. Immediately an outfielder runs 5.00 m/s toward the infield and catches the ball at the same height it was hit. What was the original distance between the batter and the outfielder?

**2. Homework Equations**

D=.5at^2

t/9.8=Vy

D=Vt

**3. The Attempt at a Solution**

I tried solving the first one by using those equationswith some sin/cosine to get the height and horizontal distance but from there I got it wrong, by doing so I got 8.18m/s but is incorrect

2) I basically did the same as aboe but since there is a second part I am not sure what to do with it

If there are any other webistes with guides or examples with these types of problems please post
