A batter hits a pitched ball when the center of the ball is 1.35 m above the ground.The ball leaves the bat at an angle of 45° with the ground. With that launch, the ball should have a horizontal range (returning to the launch level) of 106 m. (a) Does the ball clear a 8.65-m-high fence that is 96.0 m horizontally from the launch point? (b) At the fence, what is the distance between the fence top and the ball center?
