a) A pitcher throws a baseball horizontally at 116 km/h toward home plate, which is 18.4 m away. How far will the ball drop due to gravity by the time it reaches home plate?

g=9.81m/s^2
v=116km/h

i tried to solve this question, but i dont know where to get the high.
116km/h=32.22m/s
18.4/32.22=0.57s
`

Basically, the question that it is asking is that it wants you to find how far the ball dropped since it left the pitcher's hand. What I did was that i wrote out all my horizontal givens and my vertical givens and I just solved for $$\Delta$$y after I got all the other information.
