    Kinematics/Vectors

    Help please. The question is posted below. Thanks in advance.
    __________________

    The unit vectors \bold{i} and \bold{j} lie in a vertical plane, \bold{i} being horizontal and \bold{j} vertical. A ball of mass 0.1 kg is hit by a bat which gives it an impulse of (3.5 \bold{i} + 3 \bold{j}) Ns. The velocity of the ball immediately after being hit is (10 \bold{i} + 25 \bold{j}) ms^{-1}.
    (a) Find the velocity of the ball immediately before it is hit.

    In the subsequent motion the ball is modelled as a particle moving freely under gravity. When it is hit the ball is 1 m above horizontal ground.
    (b) Find the greatest height of the ball above the ground in the subsequent motion.

    The ball is caught when it is again 1 m above the ground.
    (c) Find the distance from the point where the ball is hit to the point where it is caught.

    the formula of impulse is:

    Ft = mv - mu
    where,
    Ft= impulse
    m = mass
    v=final velocity
    u = initial velocity
