A soccer ball is kicked with an initial horizontal velocity of 15m/s and an initial velocity of 16m/s.
What's the speed of the ball 1 second after it was kicked?
Initial velocity = sqrt([horiz. Velocity]^2 + [vertical Velocity]^2)
Final velocity = initial velocity + (gravity*time)
The Attempt at a Solution
Initial velocity = sqrt (15^2 + 16^2)
Initial velocity = 22m/s
Final velocity = 22m/s + (9.81m/s*1second)
Final velocity = 31.81 m/s
