all the problem gives me is: a batter hits a ball 98 meters for a homerun and he hit it at a 45 degree angle. what is the velocity of the ball off of the bat? assume the fence is at the same height as the balll. how do i get the velocity of this thing? I tried getting the height which would be 49 meters and then figuring the time i would take to fall 49 meters, but I dont think that is right. any ideas?
