a 78g basketball is launched at 40.4 degrees at at 14.2m, ball is released at same height as basket. what speed must the player give the ball.

2. Relevant equations

deltax = 2(Vo^2)sin(2theta)

3. The attempt at a solution

14.2 = 2Vo^2 * (.9871360) / 9.8

69.58 = Vo^2(.9871360)

Vo^2 = 70.48

Vo = 8.4
