A small steel ball bearing with a mass of 11.0 g is on a short compressed spring. When aimed vertically and suddenly released, the spring sends the bearing to a height of 1.37 m. Calculate the horizontal distance the ball would travel if the same spring were aimed 30.0 deg from the horizontal.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I started off by getting the initial velocity for when it was released vertically and got vo=5.18m/s.

Then I used the initial velocity to find time in the air using cos theta and got t=.08s but I do not think that is right and this is where I got stuck.

So if someone can show me what I did wrong or missed it would help.

Thanks,
