Every once in a while a bird will get hit by a baseball during a baseball game. The longest home runs in baseball land about 500 feet (which is 152.4 meters) from home plate. If these balls leave the bat at a 45 degree angle to maximize their distance, what is the minimum safe height in meters for birds around baseball stadiums?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3actually this question does not seemt oo much hard to me. What we are given with is horizontal range (R) and theta (angle) given : R = 500 ft. and theta = 45 degrees Since \(R = \large{\frac{u^2 \sin 2\theta}{2g}}\) = 500ft. put theta = 45 degrees and g = 10 m/s^2 . calculate the *u* first (initial velocity)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Oh sorry : R = \(\large{\frac{u^2 \sin 2\theta}{g}}\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1OK, we are assuming \(g = 9.8 ~m/s^2\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[500 = \dfrac{u^2 }{9.81}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[u = \sqrt{500 \cdot 9.81}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3that will come approx. u = 50 root 2 or 70.7 [ i took g = 10 m/s^2 ]

mathslover

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3and if we take g = 9.81 then it is u = 70.03 m/s

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3now we have u as initial velocity calculate the max. height of the projection (H): \[\large{ H = \frac{ u^2 \sin ^2 \theta}{2g}}\] Calculate H now.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1one unit is in meter and the other is in ft can you reconcile this?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Yeah @rajshikhargupta you're also right . I think he might have not given view on that. Though , good to see you knew that :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I don't remember how I got here, but that is an awesome drawing by @nincompoop and it deserved more attention and medals. Also, even though it's 2 months old, looks like you guys messed up your calculation @mathslover and @ParthKohli "given : R = 500 ft. put theta = 45 degrees and g = 10 m/s^2 " You both used the range in feet, but gravity in metres...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[R=\frac{ Vo ^{2}\sin 2\theta }{ g }\] \[Vo ^{2}=\frac{ Rg }{ \sin 2\theta }\]=\[[152.4m(9.81s ^{2}/m)]/[\sin(2*45)]\]=\[1495.044 s ^{2}\] \[H=\frac{Vo ^{2} \sin ^{2}θ }{ 2g }\] =\[\frac{ {(1495.044 s ^{2})[\sin(45)^{2}]} }{2*9.81 \frac{ m }{ s ^{2} } }\] =38.1 m < answer
