Sara throws a baseball to Janice. The baseball has a mass of 0.142kg. It is 1.1m above the ground, moving at 15m/s when sara lets go of it. Ignore the effects of air resistance. The baseball is moving horizontally at 13m/s when it reaches maximum height.

Calculate the maximum height reached by the baseball.

Step 1

Given value:

Mass of the baseball, m = 0.142 kg

Height of the baseball above the ground, h = 1.1 m

Initial velocity, u = 15 m/s

Final velocity, v = 13 m/s

Acceleration due to gravity = -g

Let the maximum height reached by the baseball be H

Step 2

Writing the third equa...
