A baseball leaves a pitcher's hand horizontally at a speed of

(a) How long does it take for the ball to travel the first half of that distance?

s

(b) How long does it take for the ball to travel the second half of that distance?

s

(c) How far does the ball fall under gravity during the first half?

m

(d) How far does the ball fall under gravity during the second half?

m

For A I know D and V so I just did v = d/t which translates to t = d/v

It doesn't work.. What am I doing wrong?

**165 km/h**. The distance to the batter is**18.3 m**. Neglect air resistance.(a) How long does it take for the ball to travel the first half of that distance?
