Homework Statement



Hi all , I have a problem statement , I know how to solve it but I don't know how to graph velocities so I can use cartesian coordinate and thus have correct answers. Would you please help me ??

A pitcher throws a fastball, which crosses the plate with a speed of 95 mph and an angle of 5° relative to the horizontal. The batter hits it for a home run, launching it with 113 mph at an angle of 35° to the horizontal.

I have never watched a baseball match ! so can you help me ?

Without seeing the question, there's no way of knowing what you're supposed to do. If you've solved it, great, if not and you still need assistance - detail the question.
