Homework Help: Kinematics in Two or Three Dimensions

  1. Oct 12, 2011 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    At t = 0 a batter hits a baseball with an initial speed of 29 m/s at a 55° angle to the horizontal. An outfilder is 85 m from the batter at t = 0 and, as seen from home plate, the line of sight to the outfilder makes a horizontal angle of 22° with the plane in which the ball moves. What speed and direction must the fielder take to catch the ball at the same height from which it was struck? Give the angle with respect to the outfilder's line of sight to home plate.
