    During the world series a ball is hit straight up from the batter's box and reaches a height of 295 ft. Neglecting air friction, what speed (mph) will the baseball attain if it is caught by the catcher at the same height it was hit?

    You've got to show an attempt at solving your own problem in order to receive help.

    Also, PF Rules require that you use the HW Template when posting HW problems.
