## Homework Statement

A basketball leaves the hands of a shooter 2.1 meters above the floor and soars towards the basket, which is at a horizontal distance of 3 meter from the shooter. If the basket is 2.6 meters above the floor, and the player shoots the ball at an angle of 45 degree above the horizontal, calculate the initial velocity the shooter must give the basketball in order to score a basket.

Yo = 2.1m

Xo = 3m

Y = 2.6m

Ao = 45 degrees above horizontal (?)

## Homework Equations
