Hi,
I came across this formula , and when I used it to solve problems, I got ridiculous answers.
I asked others and they suggested , but I am not too sure about it.
Can anyone help we clarify how this formula works? Is it the right formula?
Thanks!

The question was in the context of trajectories, where we have to find the height of a baseball after impact from a bat. The question supplied the first equation and I get really weird answers.
Any suggestions?If an object is thrown into the air with an initial upward velocity of r, then its distance above its starting height at t seconds after it was thrown is approximately meters. Homer Un, the famous baseball player hit a fly ball to the infield with an initial upward velocity of 30 meters per second.
a. What is the height after 2 seconds?
Thanks!
