**[SOLVED] Projectile motion question**

## Homework Statement

A 2.291m tall man shoots a ball at 19m/s at an angle of 74 degrees above the horizontal into a hoop that is 3.048m tall, how long does it take the ball to reach its max height? To reach the hoop? What is the horizontal length of the shot?

## Homework Equations

I used Y=Voy-.5gt^2 to find the max height but not sure if this is the rights equation

## The Attempt at a Solution

I used Y=19t -.5(9.81)t^2 to get t~1.937 s

I am confused because the start and end heights are different (the man is 2.291, tall and the hoops is 3.048m). I'm not sure how to deal with this.
