A baseball is thrown at an angle of 24 degrees relative to the ground at a speed of 29.3 m/s. The ball is caught 65.0 m from the thrower. The acceleration of gravity is 9.81 m/s^2.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

a) How long is it in the air? Answer in units of s.

b) How high is the tallest spot in the ball's path? Answer in units of m.

I have no clue on how to solve this problem. Will someone please help, or at least give me the formula to use.

Thanks
