Solution: A baseball thrown at an angle of 60.0° above the horizontal strikes a building 18.0 m away at a point 8.00 m above the point from which it is thrown. Ignore air resistance.(a) Find the magnitude of the ball’s initial velocity (the velocity with which the ball is thrown).(b) Find the magnitude and direction of the velocity of the ball just before it strikes the building.

Problem

A baseball thrown at an angle of 60.0° above the horizontal strikes a building 18.0 m away at a point 8.00 m above the point from which it is thrown. Ignore air resistance.
(a) Find the magnitude of the ball’s initial velocity (the velocity with which the ball is thrown).
(b) Find the magnitude and direction of the velocity of the ball just before it strikes the building.
