Football Clearing Tree#


If a person throws a football towards their friend who is behind a tree, will the football hit or clear the tree? The football is thrown from a distance \(d = {{ params_d }} \ \rm{m}\) from the tree, the tree has a height of \(H = {{ params_h }} \ \rm{m}\), and the football is released at a height of \(h = {{ params_h2 }} \ \rm{m}\). The velocity of the football is \(v_0 = {{ params_v }} \ \rm{m/s}\) and the angle that the football is thrown relative to the ground is \(\theta = {{ params_theta }}^{\circ}\).
