Question

A home run is hit in such a way that the baseball just clears a wall 14 m high, located 132 m from home plate. The ball is hit at an angle of 37° to the horizontal, and air resistance is negligible. (Assume that the ball is hit at a height of 1.0 m above the ground.)Find(a) the initial speed of the ball (b) the time it takes to reach the wall and (c) the velocity components and the speed of the ball when it reaches the wall.( assume the ball was hit at a height of 1 m above the ground. Please show me the steps you take to solve this. Thank you.

Answer #1

A home run is hit in such a way that the baseball just clears a
wall 20 m high, located 128 m from home plate. The ball is hit at
an angle of 33° to the horizontal, and air resistance is
negligible. (Assume that the ball is hit at a height of 1.0 m above
the ground.)
(a) Find the initial speed of the ball.
m/s
(b) Find the time it takes the ball to reach the wall.

(c)...

A baseball (a projectile) is launched from a height of 2 meters
above the ground at a speed of 34 m/s at an angle of 22 degrees
above the horizontal. The ball is directly hit a fielder who will
catch the ball and the fielder is initially 91 meters from point
where the baseball is hit (home plate). If his reaction time is
0.40 seconds (time before he starts to move), what is the minimum
speed he much run, in...

According to the Guinness Book of World Records,the
longest home run ever measured was hit by Roy “Dizzy” Carlyle in a
minor league game. The ball traveled 188 m (618 ft) before landing
on the ground outside the ballpark.
1.Assuming the ball's initial velocity was 47 ∘ above the
horizontal and ignoring air resistance, what did the initial speed
of the ball need to be to produce such a home run if the ball was
hit at a point 0.9...

The right field wall at Yankee stadium is 96m from the home
plate. The outfield fence is 2.57m high. When a home run is hit
over the right field fence, what is the minimum initial speed of
the ball if the initial velocity makes an angle of 35◦ with the
horizontal direction? Assume that the ball was hit 1m above the
ground.

A baseball pitcher releases the ball at a height of 1.9 m above
the ground at a horizontal distance of 18.5 m from home plate. The
initial angle is 0.50° above the horizontal. In order to throw a
strike, the ball must cross home plate between 55 and 120 cm above
the ground. For what range of initial speeds will the pitch be in
the strike zone? Ignore the effects of air resistance.

A major leaguer hits a baseball so that it leaves the bat at a
speed of 29.0 m/s and at an angle of 35.0o above the horizontal.
You can ignore air resistance. a. At what two times is the baseball
at a height of 11.6 m above the point at which it left the bat? b.
The ball hits a sign 72.0 m from the batter. If the bat hit the
ball when it was 2.0 m above the ground,...

You stand 17.5 m from a wall holding a tennis ball. You throw
the tennis ball at the wall at an angle of 40.5∘ from the ground
with an initial speed of 26.5 m/s. At what height above its initial
position does the tennis ball hit the wall? Ignore any effects of
air resistance.

Casey loves baseball, and one night has a vivid dream about
saving his team in the last inning of the game when they are three
runs down and with bases loaded. Casey steps to the plate, points
the bat upward toward left field, and then proceeds to hit the ball
out of the park to achieve the Grand Slam needed to win the game.
The crowd goes wild! He later learns that the ball traveled
approximately 200 meters before landing...

A boy uses a slingshot to launch a pebble straight up into the
air. The pebble reaches a height of 38.0 m above the launch point
1.0 seconds later. Assume air resistance is negligible.
(a) What was the pebble's initial speed (just after leaving the
slingshot)?
42.9 m/s
(b) How much time did it take for the pebble to first reach a
height of 19.0 m above its launch point?
? s
You toss a tennis ball straight upward. At...

A baseball is hit with a speed of 30.0 m/s at an angle of 50.0 ∘
. It lands on the flat roof of a 13.0 m -tall nearby building.
If the ball was hit when it was 1.1 m above the ground, what
horizontal distance does it travel before it lands on the
building?
