A 2.05 m tall basketball player takes a shot when he is 6.02 m from
the basket (at the three-point line). If the launch angle is 25
degrees and the ball was launched at the level of the player's head,
what must be the release speed of the ball for the player to make the
shot? The basket is 3.05 m above the floor.
There is no answer at this time.
