Ok heres the problem:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A batter hits a ball which leaves the bat 1 meter above the ground at an angle of 65 degrees with an initial velocity of 30 m/s. How far from home plate will the ball land if not caught and ignoring any air resistence?

So I tried solving for how much of the velocity is is the x and y components.

X= Vcos65

Y= Vsin65

which gave me x=12.68 and y=27.19

Then using the equation X=X(initial) + V(initial x)T + .5A(x)T^2

I plugged in my numbers to get 0=1+12.68t+.5(9.8)T^2.

This is where I'm stuck. Am I on the right track or what? Help please. Thanks.
