(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); URGENT!!! General Launch Angle Problem

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A batted baseball leaves the bat at an angle of 25.0 above the horizontal and is caught by an outfielder 370 ft from home plate at the same height from which it left the bat

What was the initial speed of the ball?

How high does the ball rise above the point where it struck the bat?

2. Relevant equations

the 3 acceleration equations

v = vo + at

v^2 = vo^2 + 2a(deltax)

x = xo + vot + 1/2at^2

3. The attempt at a solution

I have tried everything but it seems like this problem is impossible without at least a time or something. This problem isn't a typo tho and there is definitely a solution.
