Consider a projectile launched at a height h feet above the ground and at an angle ???? with the horizontal. If the initial velocity is v0 feet per second, the path of the projectile is modeled by the parametric equations x = t(v0 cos(????)) and y = h + (v0 sin(????))t ? 16t2. The center field fence in a ballpark is 10 feet high and 400 feet from home plate. The ball is hit h = 2 feet above the ground. It leaves the bat at an angle of ???? degrees with the horizontal at a speed of 105 miles per hour (see figure).
