- Homework Statement
- A baseball is hit 50 meters. The sound of the ball hitting the ground is heard 6 seconds later. How long did it take for the ball to hit the ground

- Relevant Equations
- Δd = (Vo + Vf)/2 * t

So I figured that to find how long did the ball take to hit the ground I would have to subtract 6 with the time it took the sound to reach back to the player.

My givens are

Velocity Intial = 330 m/s, speed of sound

Δd = 50m

Velocity Final = 0m/s because sound stops when it reaches the ear?? confused about this one

What I need to find is the time

Δd = (Vo + Vf)/2 * t

50 = 330/2 * t

50 = 165* t

t = 0.303 -- Time it takes to get back to the ear

6 - 0.303 = 5.7

The answer on the back is 5.805

How can I find a solution to this problem, thank you for reading
