A centerfielder fields a ground ball and attempts to make a 210-ft throw to home plate. Given that the center fielder commonly makes long throws at 75 mph, find the two possible angles at which he can throw the ball to home plate. Find the time saved by choosing the smaller angle. I need a smaller and a larger angle.

Step 1

Here distance is 210 ft travelled by a projectile fired from the ground with an angle and v_{0} = 75mph = 110ft/sec is the initial velocity.

The projectile motion is:

Step 2

So, possible value of **2** is **33.74** degree and **180 – 33.74 = 146.26 **and possible value of is **16.87** degree and **73.13 degree**

Therefore, the possible angles are **16.87** degree and **73.13** degree.

Step 3

Part ( b) :
