A player kicks a football at an angle of $30^{\circ}$ with horizontal and initial velocity of 19.6m/s. A second player standing at a distance of 20.95m from the first player and in the direction of the kick,starts running to meet the ball, at the instant it is kicked. How far and how fast must he run in order to catch the ball before it hits the ground ?

\[(a)\;12 m,6 m/s\quad (b)\;14m,6.5m/s \quad (c)\;13m , 8 m/s \quad (d)13m,6.5 m/s\]

Let the ball be kicked from P and seconds player be at Q
Ball and second player reach O at same time,t,
Therefore $t=\large\frac{2u \sin \theta}{g}$
$\qquad=\large\frac{2 \times 19.6 \times \sin 30}{9.8}$
$PO=R=\large\frac{u^2 \sin 2 \theta}{g}$
$\qquad=\large\frac{(19.6)^2 \sin 60}{9.8}$$=33.95m$
Distance covered by $2 ^{nd}$ player is
Speed of the second player
Hence d is the correct answer.
