Thanks Thaakisfox! Problem solved!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A track athlete leaves the ground with initial speed 10.2 m/s and makes an 8.8 meter long jump. Calculate the most likely angle of the direction of his take off with respect to the horizontal.

Vo = 10.2 m/s

x = 8.8 m

xo = 0 m

Ao = ?

2. Relevant equations

x=Vo * CosAo * t

Vx = VoCosAo

3. The attempt at a solution

I have a missing t (time) variable or I'm using the wrong formula(s)?
