Motions in 2 dimensions

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    here's a picture of what the case is :


    if I drop a ball with the initial velocity is v at h. How do I find R here in terms of h?

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    Forums rules state you have to atleast attempt the problem. I'll give you a hint though, you only need newtons second law to solve this problem.

    well, I found a rule in the textbook where R = (v*2sin(theta))/g, but I wasn't really sure if this works as it's for projectile cases and it doesn't show anything about h. I need to find the equation using the two dimensional rules formulas.
