Homework Help: Calculating displacement, distance traveled, and max height

  1. Feb 5, 2009 #1
    Hi I need help solving this problem. Thank you.

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data[/b]

    assume g = 9.81 m/s2, and friction can be ignored.

    A ball is thrown into the air at speed 43 m/s, at an angle of 53.7 o to the ground. The ball lands at the same elevation as it was thrown.

    a) Find the time it took to hit the ground in seconds

    b) Find the horizontal distance the ball traveled in meters

    c) find the maximum height the ball reached in meters
