Two baseballs are thrown off the top of a building that is 7.24 m high. Both are thrown with initial speed of 63.3 mph. Ball 1 is thrown horizontally, and ball 2 is thrown straight down. What is the difference in the speeds of the two balls when they touch the ground? (Neglect air resistance.)
vball 1 - vball 2 = 1
