```							Time it takes for ball to reach plate: (60.5 ft) / [(92 mi/h)(5280 ft/mi)(h / 3600 s)] = 0.448 s distance ball falls: y = gt^2/2 y = (32.2 ft/s^2)(0.448 s)^2 / 2 y = 3.23 ft This is between 1.30 and 3.60 ft so, yes, the pitcher can keep this pitch within the strike zone. RegardsArun (askIITians forym expert)
