Question

A basketball player attempts a three-point shot 10.0 m from the basket as shown in the figure below. The player shoots the ball at an angle of

θ = 36.4° from horizontal, and releases the ball at a height of h = 2.20 m. The rim of the basket is at a height of H = 3.05 m.

At what speed (in m/s) must the player throw the basketball so that the ball goes through the hoop without striking the backboard?

Step 1

Given,

Horizontal displacement, x = 10 m

Vertical displacement, y = (3.05 -2.2) = 0.85 m

Angle of shoot, *θ* = 36.4^{o}

Step 2

Formula used.

*Where,*

*y* = vertical position (*m*)

*x* = horizontal position (*m*)

*v _{0}* = initial velocity (combined components,

*g* = acceleration due to gravity (9.80 *m/s ^{2}*)

*θ* = angle of the initial velocity from the horizontal plane (radians or degrees)

Step 3

Form the equation of traje...
