## Homework Statement

a baseball player hits a home run that just clears a fence that is 19.0 meters high.The fence is located 128 meters from the home player(where the ball is hit). The ball was hit at an angle of 37.0 degrees above the horizontal from a height of 0.900 meters above the ground.

a) what is the initial speed of the ball?

b)how long does it take the baseball to reach the fence

c)what are the horizontal and verticle component of the ball and its speed when it reaches the fence?

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

for a), it confuses me because of the 0.900m it was hit above the ground. Is it possible to make the 0.900 into 0 and the fence is 19.0m - 0.900m? So everything is shifted to ground level.
