Question: during an astros baseball game jose altuves bat makes contact...

Question details

During an Astros baseball game, Jose Altuve's bat makes contact with a fast ball and lofts it toward the left field Crawford boxes. His bat hits the ball when it crosses the plate 1.00 m above the ground, giving it an initial velocity toward the left field at 32.0 m/s at an angle of 45.0 degrees above the horizontal. If the left field wall is located 96.0 m from the home plate and rises to a height of 6.00 m, does the ball make it over the wall for a home run or does it fall short? Assume you can neglect air resistance and show calculations you need to justify your answer.
