In Canadian football, after a touchdown the team has the opportunity to earn one more point by kicking the ball over the bar between the goal posts. Football regulations are stated in British units (for which g = 32.26 ft/s2): the bar is 10 feet (3.05 m) above the ground, and the ball is kicked from ground level, 32 yards (29.26 m) horizontally from the bar (Fig. P3.60). (a) There is a minimum angle above the ground such that if the ball is launched below this angle, it can never clear the bar, no matter how fast it is kicked. What is this angle? (b) If the ball is kicked at 45.0° above the horizontal, what must its initial speed be if it is just to clear the bar? Express your answer in m/s and in km/h
