A batter hits a softball over a third baseman's head with speed and at an angle from the horizontal. Immediately after the ball is hit, the third baseman turns and runs at a constant velocity , for a time . He then catches the ball at the same height at which it left the bat. The third baseman was initially from home plate (the location where the ball was hit from). Find . Use for the magnitude of the acceleration due to gravity. Assume that there is no air resistance. Find the angle in degrees. Find the components and of the ball’s velocity, , 0.100 before the ball is caught.
