According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the longest home run ever measured was hit by Roy "Dizzy" Carlyle in a minor-league game. The ball traveled 188m (618 ft.) before landing on the ground outside the ballpark. Assuming that the ball's initial velocity was 41.0 degrees above the horizontal, and ignoring air resistance, what did the initial speed of the ball need to be to produce such a home run if the ball was hit at a point 0.900 m (3.00ft ) above ground level? Assume that the ground was perfectly flat.
