Solution Summary

The solution calculates impulse of a foot kicking a soccer ball.

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 ...
