(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

the top of the pool table is 0.710m from the floor. the placement of the tape is such at 0m aligns to the edge of the table. the winner of the competition wants to know if he has broken the world record for the break shot of 32mph ( about 14.3m/s) the ball landed a distance of 3.65m from the table edge.

1. calculate his break shot speed

2. at what speed did his pool ball hit the ground?

2. Relevant equations

speed=distance/time m/s

3. The attempt at a solution

givens are 32mph, and the distance which is 3.65m.... the height(im not even really sure if this relates to the problem) is 0.710m. im not sure what the 0m has to do with this either. i'm pretty sure im suppose to find the time now since i have the distance 3.65m.

sorry if this information sucks but i just started physics 3 days ago and the class pace is obviously too fast for me. it would help if u provide a step by step explanation process. thanks!
