the center field fence in a ball park is 10ft high and 400 feet from home plate. the ball is hit 3 ft above ground. it leaves the bat at an angle of theta degrees with the horizontal speed of 147.67ft/second. find the minimum angle at which the ball must leave the bat in order for hit to be a home run.
the path of the projectile is modeled by the parametric equations:
The Attempt at a Solution
substitute 400 in for x and 147.67 for v0to solve for t
then i took t and put it into the equation for y
Did I do this correctly? If so, can some one help me with the math to solve for theta?
