    Solution Preview

    Let the velocity of the ball after being kicked be v
    ball leaves the ground at an angle of 30 deg
    Therefore horizontal component = v cos 30= 0.866v
    vertical component = v sin 30= 0.866v

    The ball travels a distance of 15 m
    Therefore distance travelled ...

    Solution Summary
