11. A major-league pitcher can throw a baseball in excess of 42.4 m/s. If a ball is thrown
horizontally at this speed and acts like a projectile, how much will it drop by the time it
reaches the catcher who is 17.0 m away from the point of release?

  • physics -

    V*t = 17 m.
    42.4 * t = 17
    t = 0.40 s.

    d = 0.5g*t^2
    g = 9.8m/s^2
