okay so heres the problem..(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

the fastest recored pitch in MLB was thrown by nolan ryan in 1974. if this pitch were thrown horizontally, the ball would fall 0.809 m by the time it reached the home plate, 18.3 m away. how fast was this pitch?

the book suggests the equation

deltay= -1/2g(deltat)squared

we just started this lesson and i'm really not sure what variable represents what in this problem
