Examples A baseball player at second base throws a ball 90 feet to the player at first base. The ball is thrown at 50 miles per hour at an angle of 15 above the horizontal. At what height does the player at first base catch the ball if the ball is thrown from a height of 5 feet? A projectile is fired from ground level at an angle of 12 with the horizontal. Find the minimum initial velocity if the projectile is to have a range of 150 feet.
