A batter hits a fly ball which leaves the bat 0.90 m above the ground at an angle of 61° with an initial speed of 29 m/s heading toward centerfield. Ignore air resistance.
(a) How far from home plate would the ball land if not caught?
(b) The ball is caught by the centerfielder who, starting at a distance of 105 m from home plate, runs straight toward home plate at a constant speed and makes the catch at ground level. Find his speed.

help is desperately needed! Ive been sick and missed 4 days of school and the teacher is still making the assignment due the same day for me as everyone else!
