Motion problem.

  1. Feb 10, 2008 #1
    a) A pitcher throws a baseball horizontally at 116 km/h toward home plate, which is 18.4 m away. How far will the ball drop due to gravity by the time it reaches home plate?

    Basically, the question that it is asking is that it wants you to find how far the ball dropped since it left the pitcher's hand. What I did was that i wrote out all my horizontal givens and my vertical givens and I just solved for [tex]\Delta[/tex]y after I got all the other information.
