A 0.4-kg soccer ball is kicked from a location m (on the ground) with initial velocity m/s. The ball's speed is low enough that air resistance is negligible. Therefore, you can assume that the net force is constant. (Note: the +y direction is defined to be perpendicular to the ground and upward, and the x-z plane is the soccer field. t = 0 is defined to be the instant the ball leaves the foot.)

  1. What is the velocity and position of the ball at t = 0.3 s after being kicked?
  2. What is the maximum height reached by the ball?
