Problem 15P

Playing shortstop, you pick up a ground ball and throw it to second base. The ball is thrown horizontally, with a speed of 22 m/s, directly toward point A (Figure 4-13). When the ball reaches the second baseman 0.45 s later, it is caught at point B. (a) How far were you from the second baseman? (b) What is the distance of vertical drop, AB?

FIGURE 4-13 Problem 15

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 15P

Step 1 of 3

Here we have to calculate the distance of second man from the ball releasing position and  the vertical drop distance during shortstop.

The baseball is thrown horizontally with initial speed of and the ball reaches the second man in time interval .

Given data,

Horizontal speed,

Vertical speed,

Time interval,

Acceleration due to gravity,
