physics
The fastest recorded pitch in the MLB was thrown by Nolan Ryan in 1974. If this pitch were thrown horizontally, the ball would falll .809m (2.65 ft) by the time it reached home plate, 18.3 m away (60 ft). The acceleration of gravity is 9.81 m/s^2. How fast was Ryan's pitc...

Part 1: A long jumper leaves theground at an angle of 21.7 degrees to the horizontal and at a speed of 10.6 m/s. The acceleration of gravity is 9.8 m/s^2. How far does he jump? Answer in units of m. Part 2: What is the maximum height he reaches? Answer in units of m.

physics
Part 1: A ball is thrown horizontally from the top of a building 28.6 m high. The ball strikes the ground at a point 80.3 m from the base of the building. The acceleration of gravity is 9.8 m/s^2. Find the time the ball is in motion. Answer in units of s. Part 2: Find the ini...

During a baseball game, a batter hits a pop-up to a fielder 94 m away. The acceleration of grvity is 9.8 m/s^2. If the ball remains in the air for 5.5 seconds, how high does it rise? Answer in units of m.

math
Since we know that the ladder is like the hypotenuse of a right triangle, we use the Pythagorous theorem. Which is what the person above used. any Right (90 degree) triangle with height (a) and base (b) has a hypotenuse (c) where a^2 + b^2 = c^2
