The center of a baseball of diameter 8.20 cm is 1.320 m vertically above the plate when it is hit. The blast sends it off at an angle of 30.5° above the horizontal with an unknown initial speed. The outfield fence is 94.0 m away and 11.20 m tall: the ball just clears it. Ignoring aerodynamic effects, what was the initial speed of the baseball?
-d=vt for the x direction
-any free fall equation for the y direction
The Attempt at a Solution
dx= 94.0m dy= 9.88m (subtracted the height in which the ball was hit at)
Vx= vcos(30.5 Viy=?
t= 94.0/vcos(30.5 a= -9.8m.s^2
where am i going wrong in this problem? help will be greatly appreciated, thanks!
