# Math Help - Velocity and Acceleration

1. ## Velocity and Acceleration

Any help with this is appreciated

A batter hits a baseball 3ft above the ground toward the center field fence, which is 10 ft high and 400 ft from home plate. The ball leaves the bat with 115 ft/s at an angle 50 degrees above the horizontal. Is it a home run? (In other words, does the ball clear the fence?)

2. Assuming there is no air resistance

$V_x= V_o \cos \theta$
$V_y= V_o \sin \theta$

Time that it took for the ball to travel 400 feet:
$V_x t= \Delta x=400$

The distance the ball traveled vertically is
$\Delta y=3+V_y t$

you should be able to figure the rest out

3. GOT IT!!!!

Thanks
