# How far beyond the fence does the ball strike the ground?

**1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data**

A baseball is hit at ground level. The ball reaches its maximum height above ground level 3.1 s after being hit. Then 2.6 s after reaching its maximum height, the ball barely clears a fence that is 97.2 m from where it was hit. Assume the ground is level.

a) How far beyond the fence does the ball strike the ground?

**2. Relevant equations**

V = x/t
