A golfer on a fairway is 0.070 km away from the green, which sits below the level of the fairway by 20.0 m. The golfer hits the ball at an angle of from the horizontal with an initial speed of cm/s, at what distance from the green will the ball land?
A soccer ball that scores a goal hits the net 2.44 m above the ground. A player kicks the ball at a distance of 10 m from the goal at an angle of above the horizontal. What is the initial speed of the soccer ball?
What is the horizontal displacement from the point where the ball is kicked to the point where the ball lands?
An identical ball is given an identical kick by an astronaut on a wide, flat surface of ground on the Moon. Gravitational acceleration by the moon is one-sixth of that on Earth. What is the horizontal displacement from the point where the ball is kicked to the point where the ball lands?
