In a snowball fight 2 snowballs are thrown in the same direction, but one is thrown 70.0 degrees with respect to the horizontal and the other is thrown some arbitrary distance lower. they both are thrown with a speed of 25.0 m/s.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

At what angle should the one that is thrown lower be to arrive at the same point as the one that was thrown at 70.0 degrees?

How many seconds later should the lower thrown snowball be thrown to arrive at the same time as the higher one.

resolving into x and y components for the first one i get.

x initial = 0

x final =?

v initial = 25.0cos(70.0)

v final = 0 m/s

a = 0 m/s^2

y initial = 0

y final = ?

v initial = 25.0sin(70.0)

v final = 0m/s

a = -9.80m/s^2

then i get lost...
