## Homework Statement

Hello,

I have a language problem that affects my Math problem :-) I hope you can assist me with this.

The Maximum range of a projectile is directly proportional to the square of it's velocity. A baseball pitcher can throw a ball at 60 min/h, with a maximum range of 242ft. What would his maximum range be if he could throw the ball at 70 min/h.

I'm not what min/h means. isn't velocity is in m/s or ft/s?

I'm lost at this point.

I would think it's something like m = (v^2)x

but I'm not sure if it's even a right assumption.

thank you for any input

What would be the formula?
