I'm having difficulty with these two problems:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1. A mass is moving towards a massive crater (along the +x direction) on the Moon with an initial velocity of 636.8 cm/s. How far will the object fall in the first 1.1 seconds.

2. An object initially displaced 56.8 m (along the horizontal x direction) has in initial velocity downward (along the -y direction) of 152.4 cm/s. If this object is on Neptune, how far (in meters) will it fall after 22.5 seconds?

I'm not looking for the answers, I just need someone to point me in the right direction. I have attempted solving several different ways to no avail. The acceleration due to gravity on the Moon is 1.6 m/s2 and 14.07 m/s2 on Neptune. Thanks in advance!
