Projectile Motion 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Joe Carter hit a fly ball during spring training. It just cleared a 10m fence, Calculate the speed of the ball when it leaves his bat at ground level. Ignore friction. http://img155.imageshack.us/img155/7161/physics.png [Broken] 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution v in x direction was found to equal 12.5 m/s which is the same as v in y direction since the tangent formed was a 45-45-90 degree angle triangle.
