    Projectile motion of a baseball

    ok...i am pretty sure i can help you witht his one :) if you have been learning projectile motion in class then you should know: \Delta Y = (V_{0}sin\varphi)(t)-.5gt^{2} where \varphi = 45 degrees (the angle of "launch" also you should know: \Delta X = (V_{0}cos\varphi)(t) NOW here is what you...
