Projectile Motion with a Baseball

A baseball thrown at an angle of 60 degrees above the horizontal strikes a building 20m away at a point 8m above the point from which it is thrown. Ignoring air resistance. Find
A) the magnitude of the initial velocity of the baseball and
B) the time it takes to reach the point.

Solution Summary

This solution uses two of the Big Five Kinematic equations to address the projectile motion of the baseball thrown at an angle of 60 degrees above the horizontal to determine the magnitude of initial velocity and time it takes to reach destination.
