A ball player hits a home run, and the baseball just clears a wall 20.9 m high located 131.0 m from home plate. The ball is hit an an angle of 35° to the horizontal, and air resistance is negligible. Assume the ball is hit at a height of 0.9 m above the ground.

(a) What is the initial speed?

m/s

(b) How much time does it take for the ball to reach the wall?

s

(c) Find the components of the velocity and the speed of the ball when it reaches the wall

vy,f = m/s

vx,f = m/s

vf = m/s

2. Relevant equations

vi(intial velocity)

3. The attempt at a solution

I got 8.5 seconds for the time but thats apparently not right and it's prohibiting me from further progress.
