A baseball is thrown at an angle of 25 ◦ relative to the ground at a speed of 27.6 m/s. The ball is caught 59.4844 m from the thrower. The acceleration due to gravity is 9.81 m/s 2 . How long is it in the air? Answer in units of s

the horizontal component of the velocity is
27.6 cos 25° = 25.01409 m/s
It traveled for 59.4844/25.01409 = 2.378 sec
