Babe Didrikson holds the world record for the longest baseball throw (296 ft) by a woman. For the following questions, assume that a ball is thrown at an angle of 45.0° above the horizontal, that it travels a horizontal distance of 280 ft, and is caught at the same level from which it was thrown.
What is the ball's initial speed? How long is the ball in the air?
