The trajectory of a batted baseball is shown, with angles and velocities that can be selected. The height ( axis) and distance ( axis) of the ball can be located in the control panel to find the minimum velocity and angle needed to clear the wall, for a home run. The distance and height of the wall can also be chosen. This Demonstration shows how different combinations of angle and velocity can result in very different trajectories.
