**Projectile Motion and Level Horizontal Range.**

## Homework Statement

The acceleration of gravity is 32ft/s ^2.

If a pitch were thrown horizontally with a velocity of 96.9 mi/h, how far would the ball fall vertically by the time it reached home plate, 60ft away. Answer in units of ft.

So speed is 142.12 ft/s.

## Homework Equations

Vx = Vxo + Axt

Y= Yo + VyoT + 1/2AyT^2 or Vy^2 = Vyo^2 + 2Ay(Y-Yo)

For the second equation, don't know which one to use.

## The Attempt at a Solution

I got the time it took to reach 60 feet by using the first equation. T= 4.441. I don't know where to go from there. I think I use this equation: Y= Yo + VyoT + 1/2AyT^2

but I'm not sure. Any help would be appreciated greatly.

Edit: actually t= .422 seconds.
