A person riding a bicycle on level ground at a speed of 10.6 m/s throws a baseball forward at a speed of 19.1 m/s relative to the bicycle at an angle of 41° relative to the horizontal (x) direction.


(a) If the ball is released from a height of 1.3 m, how far does the ball travel horizontally, as measured from the spot it is released?

(b) How far apart are the bicycle and the ball when the ball lands? Ignore air drag.
