## Homework Statement

An athlete puts a 16lbs shot at an angle of 45 degrees to horizontal from 6.5ft above the ground at initial speed of 44ft/sec. How far does the shot land?

g=32ft/s^2

## Homework Equations

I can only calculated the range from the point it is fired to the point where it is 6.5 ft from the ground. But I have no clue calculating the distance traveled from the interval where it is 6.5ft above the ground to the ground(y=0).

## The Attempt at a Solution

d = V0^2 sin2(45)/(32)

= (44)^2/ 32

= 60.5 ft

this is all i know. help please.
