ok im trying to find out how to work out the intial velocity of a projectile dropped from a height h and reaches a distance s.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

say a ball thrown from a height of 2.8 metres and reaches a distance of 3 metres.

I want to be able to work it out WITHOUT having to work out the time.

so cant use s=v*t

does anyone kow What is the equation for this?
