A second baseman tosses the ball to the first baseman, who catches it at the same level from which it was thrown. The throw is made with an initial speed of 17.0 m/s at an angle of 31.0° above the horizontal. (Neglect air resistance.)

A) What is the horizontal component of the ball's velocity just before it is caught?
B) How long is the ball in the air?

Solution:
Vector Vo= 17.0 m/s
Theta = 31 degrees
therefore
= m/s, =17
= =8.755 m/sec
m/s, =17cos31= 14.57 m/sec
According to kinematic equation:
+
= tt- =0 because
is the total vertical...
