A child throws a snowball with a horizontal velocity of 18m/s directly toward a tree, from a distance of 9.0m and a height above the ground of 1.5m

a) after what time interval does the snowball hit the tree?

b) at what height above the ground will the snowball hit the tree?

c) determine the snowball's velocity as it strikes the tree.

2. Relevant equations

v=d/t

3. The attempt at a solution

For a I got 0.5s from t = d/v

For b and c I have no idea. I am missing the v_{iy}value. I have no idea how to any other information.
