I have been measuring the drop over varying distances of a projectile that was fired horizontally. I have measured the drop(s) of shot from the horizontal. while recording the distances to the target.

2. Relevant equations

I have been told to use s=ut+1/2at^2

3. The attempt at a solution

accelartion=gravity

s=1/2gt^2.

The suggested formula uses time, and i dont have the times recorded, is there a way round or do i need time?
