## Homework Statement

A batted baseball leaves the bat at an angle of 33.0 above the horizontal and is caught by an outfielder 400 ft from home plate at the same height from which it left the bat

What was the initial speed of the ball?

How high does the ball rise above the point where it struck the bat?

## Homework Equations

the 3 acceleration equations

v = vo + at

v^2 = vo^2 + 2a(deltax)

x = xo + vot + 1/2at^2

## The Attempt at a Solution

I am at a lost to find velocity. Cannot seem to even start the problem.
