A stone is thrown horizontally from a height of 10m above ground and moves with constant velocity of 5m/s. Calculate:

a) the time it will take to hit the ground

b) the distance traveled in the calculated time

2. Relevant equations

Now for a i am using x = vot+1/2at2 but i just cannot get my head around it

I understand that b will be velocity x time?

3. The attempt at a solution

10 = 0 x t +1/2 x 9.81 xt2

10 = ??????

I just have some kind of mental block going on, i've read my text books and websites but no luck.
