What is the range X of the projectile as measured from the base of the cliff?

I would normally use a range equation, but I didn't think that would work here since the object is not coming back to the starting height.

the time it takes for the object to hit the ground is 14.8 seconds and the maximum height is 191 m. Now what do I do?

How did you calculate those numbers? What equations did you use? If you show us your work, it would be easier to help you.

Part of the Homework Help Template that you were provided when you started this thread (and you deleted) asks for the Relevant Equations. What are the Relevant Equations for motion under the influence of a constant acceleration (gravity)?

And what is the equation for the vertical motion of a projectile as a function of Vo, Yo, a, and time? How would you apply that equation to this question? And use the hints you were given in Post #2...
