Problem 59P

The Longest Home Run.? According to ?Guinness? ?World Records,? the longest home run ever measured was hit by Roy “?Dizzy?” Carlyle in a minor league game. The ball traveled 188 m (618 ft) before landing on the ground outside the ballpark. (a) If the ball’s initial velocity was in a direction 45o above the horizontal, what did the initial speed of the ball need to be to produce such a home run if the ball was hit at a point 0.9 m (3.0 ft) above ground level? Ignore air resistance, and assume that the ground was perfectly flat. (b) How far would the ball be above a fence 3.0 m (10 ft) high if the fence was 116 m (380 ft) from home plate?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

PROFIT MAXIMIZATION ● supply chain = global network of companies that turn raw materials into a particular product and then distribute that product to customers ● fixed costs are tied to inputs that are difficult to change in the short run ● in order to make a supply chain work, every business in the chain has to profit ● bank revenues include interest payments on loans ● bank costs = interest paid on deposits ● most important decision that sellers make = whether to produce another unit ● a person’s reservation price = the value of the most attractive alternative activity that the person could be doing at that time ● a person’s supply curve shows the opportunity cost of producing each quantity ● primary objective = maximize profit
