    A second baseman tosses the ball to the first baseman, who catches it at the same level from which it was thrown. The throw is made with an initial speed of 15.0 m/s at an angle of 33.0° above the horizontal. (Neglect air resistance.)
    How long is the ball in the air?

    Horizontal component=12.6 m/s
