Question

A golfer hits a ball with an initial velocity of magnitude v0 at an angle a with the horizontal. Knowing that the ball must clear the tops of two trees and land as close as possible to the flag, determine v0 and the distance d when the golfer uses (a) a six-iron with a = 31°, (b) a five-iron with a= 27°.
