A baseball player hits a homerun, and the ball lands in the left field seats, which is 120 m away from the point at which the ball was hit. The ball lands with a velocity of 20 m/s at an angle of 30 degrees below horizontal. Ignoring air resistance
(A) find the initial velocity and the angle above horizontal with which the ball leaves the bat;
(B) find the height of the ball relatively to the ground

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1If there is no air resistance, the parabolic path will be symmetrical, and thus it will land at the same velocity with which it left. So \[u=20 m/s and \theta=30\] The height will be \[h=u ^{2}\sin ^{2}\theta/2g\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it is like that concept in which when u fire a bullet vertically up,it comes down same straight line to hit u with same speed with which it went if not for air drag

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0there is a common principle that when a body is thrown up from a certain height,then when it comes back to the same height, it will have the same velocity

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0dw:1328876734968:dwdw:1328876550335:dw sincew the magnitude of velocity is same however when u see the angle made with the horizontal,first it is theta and next it is 189theta

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok now first draw the diagram with all velocities, distance marked in it with wat u understood

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0in A portion,they ask for angle made with horizontal which is 30 as i explained and the magnitude of velocity is same 20m/s dont bother about the direction being different as when we say that a vector has magnitude and direction, we mean to say that we can write it in terms of i^ j^ k^ anyway my magnitude of velocity remains the same if u want to write that velocity in terms of components i can teach u how to do it the u get a solid vector notation of the velocity when ball leaves bat
