A ball is thrown from a window meters above the ground with an initial velocity of meters per second and an angle of inclination of . Let the origin be the point on the (level) ground below the window.

  1. Assume the acceleration due to gravity is . Find and .

  2. Find the angle at which the ball hits the ground.

    First, determine when the ball hits the ground. This is when .
    Then angle is the angle created by the slope.
    Think of drawing a slope triangle and calculating the angle.
