a) Show that the ball hits the hoarding after 3/2 * sqrt(2) s at a pt 52.5 m high.
b) Show that the speed v of the ball when it strikes the hoarding is 5 sqrt(58) m/s at an angle of elevation alpha to the horizontal, where alpha = arctan (2/5).
c) Assuming that the ball rebounds off the hoarding at an angle of elevation alpha witha speed of 20% of v, find how far from Gee ming the ball lands.
How exactly do i do c???
By the way, the answer's meant to be 50 m
