Alright, I get how to get projectiles launched horizontally, but today our teacher wasn't even there and for some reason without going over the lesson he assigned us homework...(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

so here I am. I just need to basicly know how to do this. I have 3 example problems from my homework. if you can do it thats great, but I would also like to know how.

1) In a scene in an action movie, a stuntman jumps from the top of one bulding to the top of another buliding 4.0 meters away. after a running start, he leaps at a velocity of 5.0 m/s at an angle of 15 degreeswith respect to the flat roof. will he make it to the other roof which is 2.5 m shorter than the bulding he jumps from?

2) A golfer hits a gold ball at an angle of 25 degrees to the ground. if the golf ball covers a horizontal distance of 301.5 m, what is the balls max height?

3)a baseball is thrown at an angle of 25 degrees relative to the ground at a speed of 23 m/s. if the ball was caught 42 m from the thrower, how long was it in the air. how high did the ball travel before being caught?
