An Olympian in the long-jump goes into the jump with a speed of 11 m/s at an angle of 20 (degrees) above the horizontal. How far does the Olympian jump?

2. Relevant equations

Constant Acceleration Equations

V=Vo + at

3. The attempt at a solution

I tried to set up a X/Y Chart to solve for V, Vo, Displacement in X and Y, Acceleration, and Time. However. I'm confused on how to solve for V in the Y direction. I know that Vo and V in the X direction are equal, but how about in the Y direction? How do you solve for that? And how do you solve acceleration in the Y direction? Thanks.
