A golf ball is hit with an initial velocity of 55.0 m/s at an angle of 32 degrees above the horizontal. If the golf ball lands on the same horizontal level, determine the time it takes the ball to stay in the air.


Expert Answer

Step 1

If v is the initial velocity, θ is the projection angle, g is the acceleration due to gravity, the time t for which the ball stays in the air is,

Step 2

On substituting t...
