1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A ball thrown horizontally at 24m/s travels a horizontal distance of 52 m before hitting the ground. From what height was the ball thrown? 2. Relevant equations Kinematic equations 3. The attempt at a solution I know that the velocity needs to broken into its components. I think the angle is 90 degrees, but I'm not sure. After the components are found, I don't know where to go. I know you're supposed to plug the variable into the y equations to find the time, and then plug the time into the x equation to find displacement or whatever else. But in this problem you're looking for the height in the y direction. I'm just confused.
