A ball is thrown horizontally from the top of a 57.5-m building and lands 122.3 m from the base of the building. Ignore air resistance. (Assume the ball is thrown in the +x direction and upward to be in the +y direction.)

(a)

How long (in s) is the ball in the air?

(b)

What must have been the initial horizontal component of the velocity (in m/s)? (Indicate the direction with the sign of your answer.)

(c)

What is the vertical component of the velocity (in m/s) just before the ball hits the ground? (Indicate the direction with the sign of your answer.)

(d)

What is the velocity (in m/s) (including both the horizontal and vertical components) of the ball just before it hits the ground?

magnitude ___ m/s direction ___ ° counterclockwise from the +x-axis

Ans d Magnitude is 49.00 m/s and angle 136.69 counter clockwise from X axis
