Do not store equations in your calculator. You have to solve problems on your own; memorizing final algebraic expressions from homework assignments and just plugging numbers into them will not give you full credit. Leave all your work. ________________________________________________________________________________ A batter hits a pitched ball when the center of the ball is 0.500 m above the ground. The ball leaves the bat an angle of 30.0º with the ground. With that launch, the ball should have a horizontal range of

The equation for horizontal range yields R = (v 2 /g)sin2 θ ⇒ v = √ (Rg/sin2 θ ) = 33.64 m b) At the fence, what is the distance between the fence top and the ball center? The x and y components of the initial velocity are v 0x = v cos θ = 29.13 m/s, v 0y = v sin θ = 16.82 m/s The ball reaches the position of the fence at Δ x = v 0x t t = Δ x/v 0x = 2.918 s At this moment, the height of the ball is y(t = 2.918 s) = y + v 0y t – (1/2)gt 2 = 7.86 m Therefore, it is 2.86 m (=7.86 – 5) above the fence....
