Answer:The speed of the ball at this distance is

9.15 m/sExplanation:Given;

initial speed of the baseball, U = 5.0 m/s.

distance traveled along the path way, h = 3 m

final speed of the baseball at this distance, V = ?

The baseball is falling under the influence of gravity.

Acceleration due to gravity, g is positive, since the baseball is falling towards its direction.

g = 9.8 m/s²

Apply the third kinematic equation;

V² = U² + 2gh

V² = 5² + 2 x 9.8 x 3

V² = 25 + 58.8

V² = 83.8

V = √83.8

V = 9.15 m/sTherefore, the speed of the ball at this distance is

9.15 m/s
