Baseball is hit at 60.0m/s at an angle of 30 degrees to the horizontal. Assuming the field is level find:

Time ball was in air

How long it was in the air

How far did it go

Given

Assume up is +ve

Calculated data within brackets

Horizontal

v=(52m/s)

d=

t=

Vertical

vi=(30m/s)

vf=

a=-9.8m/s

d=

t=

Ball

v=60.0m/s[Forward30Up]

2. Relevant equations

sinθ=opp/hyp

cosθ=adj/hyp

d=ut+0.5at^2

v=d/t

3. The attempt at a solution

Assume (variable)(h) means a horizontal variable and (variable)(v) means the vertical variable.

So i drew out the vector diagram for the ball, with v(ball)=v(h)+v(v), knowing angle is 30

Using sine and cosine i was able to determine the values for v(h)=52m/s and v(v)=30m/s.

(Calculated info written in the givens within brackets)

So now I am stuck...I am not given enough information to determine any other variables, I think?
