**1. Homework Statement**

A major league pitcher can throw a baseball in excess of 42.4 m/s. if a ball is thrown horizontally at this speed, how much will it drop by the time it reaches the catcher who is 15.3 m away from the point of release?

**2. Homework Equations**

v=d/t and y=1/2(v+v0)t

**3. The Attempt at a Solution**

time=d/t y=1/2(V+v0)t

=15.3/42.4 =1/2(42.4+0)(.361)

=0.361s y=7.65

Answer: 7.65m
