When David Ortiz hit a homerun over the 12m high "Green Monster' fence at Fenway park 100m away from home plate, the ball was hit 1.0m above the ground at an angle of 35° above horizontal. What was the minumum speed of the batted ball?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

dx = 100m

Vx = Xcos35°

Vox= Xcos35°

ax = 0

dy = 11m

vy = ?

voy = ?

ay = -9.8m/s/s

t = ?

That is as far as I have gotten. I have only had experience with three missing variables, not five. How do I even start this question?
