## Homework Statement

A batter hits a baseball at a speed of 45 m/sec at an angle of 50° above the horizontal. The right fielder, who is standing 300 m away from the batter, begins to run when he sees the bat hit the ball. If the fielder runs at a constant speed, what speed does he need to run in order to catch the ball at a height of 1 m above the ground? Can he make it?

P.S. The batter hits a grounder.
