One strategy in a snowball fight is to throw a snowball at a high
angle over level ground. Then, while your opponent is watching
that snowball, you throw a second one at a low angle timed
to arrive before or at the same time as the first one. Assume
both snowballs are thrown with a speed of 25.0 m/s. The first is thrown at an angle of 70.0° with respect to the horizontal.
(a) At what angle should the second snowball be thrown to
arrive at the same point as the first? (b) How many seconds
later should the second snowball be thrown after the first for
both to arrive at the same time?
