A baseball is hit at 35.0m/s at an angle of 25.0 degrees to the horizontal.

How high will the ball go>
When will it reach that height?
How far across the baseball field will the ball travel?

Thanks.

    How far across the baseball field will the ball travel?

    The height reached is derivable from h = V^2(sin^2(µ)/2g where V = the launch velocity, µ = the launch angle and g = the acceleration due to gravity.

    Using the verical component of the launch velocity, the time to reach the maximum height derives from Vf = Vo - gt where Vf = the final vertical velocity = 0, Vo = the initial vertical velocity = 25sin25º and g is as defined earlier.

    The horizontal distance traveled derives from d = V^2sin(2µ)/2g.
