Question: a boy standing in a ditch throws a baseball upward...

Question details
A boy standing in a ditch throws a baseball upward toward his father. The ball leaves his hand at ground level, with an initial speed of 11.0 m/s, at an angle of theta = 73°, from the horizontal.

The boy's father reaches up and catches the ball over his head, at a height of 1.96 m above the ground. The father catches the ball on its way down (as shown in the Figure).

Calculate how long the ball is in the air?. ( g = 9.81 m/s2)

Horizontal distance of the dad?

Height above the level of the floor that the ball reaches?

The horizontal and vertical component of velocity when the ball reaches the dad's hands? (coming from the right) and (coming from above)

The magnitude of velocity (speed) when the ball reaches the hands of the dad?
