    A boy standing in a ditch throws a baseball upward toward his father. The ball leaves his hand at ground level, with an initial speed of 14.0 m/s, at an angle of theta = 59.0 degrees from the horizontal. The boy's father reaches up and catches the ball over his head, at a height of 2.0 m above the ground. The father catches the ball on its way down. Calculate how long the ball is in the air. ( g = 9.81 m/s2)
