A shortstop running at 2.0m/s toward third base catches and throws a ball toward home plate at 35m/s. IF the shortstop and catcher are lined up in a direct line of when the shortstop throws the ball,
a)at what angle to his body should he throw in order for the ball to move in a straight line directly from the catcher?
The Attempt at a Solution
I drew a vector diagram
The Runner is a meduim so mg= 2m/s
the ball moving was the object relative to the ground 35/ms
i think the object relative to the meduim is the side connecting to the om and mg and i need to get the angle between the om and mg
