a) What is the minimum speed with which the ball must leave the bat for the batter to have hit a home run? Neglect air resistance (which is actually not completely negligible) and assume the top of the fence is at the same height as the bat.

vmin = m/s

HELP: You may want to work part (b) first.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

b) At what angle to the horizontal must the ball leave the bat for this minimum speed to be sufficient? Please enter your answer in degrees.

q = °

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

c) When the ball is hit with the speed and angle determined above, how long does it take the ball to travel the distance to the fence?

t = s

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

d) For these same conditions, find the maximum height (relative to the top of the fence) reached by the ball on its trajectory.

ymax = m

Can you help me with some initial guidance on all these different parts..

Thanks in advance ,
