    Difficult Projectile Question

    Question:

    "a golfer hits a ball 135 metres on flat ground, 5m before it hits the ground it is at 1.8m high. Calculate the initial velocity"

    Any help?

    thanks for any advice in advance.

    Nick

    p.s. ignoring air resistance and all the usual stuff g=9.8m/s2

    It's from within the HSC maths syllabus (3U Projectile motion probably).

    I think it shouldn't be in the prelim forum, projectile motion is HSC in both 3u and physics.
