A pitcher throws a ball at an angle 37 degrees with the horizontal and observes that the ball stays in the air for 2.5s before hitting the ground. Neglecting air friction and the height of the pitcher, find

(a) the initial speed of the ball

(b) maximum height reached by the ball

(c) how fast would the pitcher have to run (at constant speed) to catch his own ball?

2. Relevant equations

v=Vinitial + at

x-xinitial=vinitial (t)+ 1/2 a t^2

basically the kinematic equations

3. The attempt at a solution

Vi=?

Vfinal=0

Ax=0

change in x=?

g=-9.8m/s^2

ok what do i do
