A man kicks a 200g ball such that it leaves the ground at an angle of 30 deg. with the horizontal and strikes the ground at the same elevation a distance of 15m away. Determine the impulse of his foot on the ball. Neglect the impulse caused by the ball's weight while its being kicked.

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