Anthony Rizzo hits a baseball in such a way that it leaves his bat traveling at 40.4 m/s at an angle of 26 degrees above the horizontal. When hit, the baseball is 1.2 m above the ground, is in fair territory, and is 127 meters away from a 3.5 m tall fence? Is this a home run?

    just plug in your numbers for the formula for a trajectory. The height

    y = 1.2 + (tan26°)x - 4.9/(40.4 cos26°)^2 x^2

    is y(127) >= 3.5?

    Okay, thank you. That makes much more sense :)
