Find out how long it takes for the ball to hit the water. The time of passage through the water is 4.6 s less that time.

Find out the velocity of the ball when it hits the water.
That's the speed with which the ball travels through the water.

You've now got the speed and the time travelled at that speed. Work out the distance travelled.
