Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Jerry on Monday, September 20, 2010 at 12:37am.

Baseball player A bunts the ball by hitting it in such a way that it acquires an initial velocity of 1.3 m/s parallel to the ground. Upon contact with the bat, the ball is 1 m above the ground. Payer B wishes to duplicate this bunt, in so far as he also wants to give the ball a velocity parallel to the ground and have his ball travel the same horizontal distance as player A's ball does. However, player B hits the ball when it is 1.8 m above the ground. What is the magnitude of the initial velocity that player B's ball must be given?

Does anyone know how to do this problem? I am very confused
