A 1.79-kg block slides down a frictionless ramp, The top of the ramp is h1 = 1.54 m above the ground; the bottom of the ramp is h2 = 0.287 m above the ground. The block leaves the ramp moving horizontally, and lands a horizontal distance away. Calculate the distance.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I used mg(delta h)=1/2mv^2 to get velocity in the x direction

Then used y=1/2at^2 to find time, I had Viy = 0, g = 9.81 and y = .287

I can't find the distance traveled am I doing something wrong?
