1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
A basketball is thrown from a height of 2.8m above the ground and goes through a basketball ring that is 3.3m above the ground. If the release velocity was 5.5 m/s at an angle of 54 degrees upwards from the horizontal, calculate the horizontal displacement the ball will travel between being released and reaching the ring 2. Relevant equations I know I have to find initial vertical and horizontal velocity and time 3. The attempt at a solution I have found initial vertical velocity of 4.45m/s and horizontal velocity to be 3.23m/s I dont know where to start with time as i have only ever done projectiles that takeoff and land at the same height ?

For any vertical or horizontal displacement, the time taken are equal.
