## Rolling Ball off a ramp

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
Given the following variables find how far the ball will land away from the point it leaves the ramp to the point it hits the ground.

Vertical:
Delta X= 1m
Velocity Final= ?
Velocity Initial= ?
Acceleration= -10 m/s^2
t= ?

Horizontal:
Delta X= ? <- Objective
Velocity Final=?
Velocity Initial= ?
Acceleration= 0 m/s^2
t=?

2. Relevant equations
Delta X= Vi(t) + (1/2)a(t^2)
Vf^2= Vi^2 +2a(deltaX)

3. The attempt at a solution
No idea where to start... I can't figure out how to solve for the Velocity. Once I get that I can get the distance for the horizontal direction.

4. Additional Notes

the ramp can be view by my crappy picture below

***The Ball starts at the tip of the ramp***

The picture of the ramp
 PhysOrg.com science news on PhysOrg.com >> King Richard III found in 'untidy lozenge-shaped grave'>> Google Drive sports new view and scan enhancements>> Researcher admits mistakes in stem cell study
 a better diagram shall be of much help... anyways draw a free body diagram of the ball and show me....
