**drwls**, Monday, November 22, 2010 at 12:51pmThe ball actually rises H = 19 feet, and falls an equal distance. The travel time of the baseball is twice the time it takes to rise or fall 19 feet. That total time is 2*sqrt[H/(2g)]= 1.086 seconds

The vertical velocity component when thrown is (0.543s)*g = 17.5 ft/s

The horizontal velocity component is (and remains) sqrt[124^2 - 17.5^2] = 122.8 ft/s

That should be multiplied by the flight time to get the distance of the throw.
