A small steel ball bearing with a mass of 12.0g is on a short compressed spring. When aimed vertically and suddenly released, the spring sends the bearing to a height of 1.41m. Calculate the horizontal distance the ball would travel if the same spring were aimed 32 degrees for the horizontal.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I found the initial velocity by pluging it into v^2 = V0^2 + 2a(x -x0) which was 5.24m/s, but I'm at a loss of how to proceed from there.
