## Homework Statement

An athlete executing a long jump leaves the ground at a 31.6° angle and travels 7.78 m. What was the take-off speed?

I have tried to solve this question but somehow keep arriving at the wrong answer. The formula that I derived is :

distance=V(initial)*sin^2(theta)/g

Where am I going wrong here? Any help would be appreciated.
