Really can't figure this out by dividing x and y. The only way i can do it is with equations that use quadratics and I can't do that in my head for a test were I'm not allowed a calculator.Please help, Thank you!!!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

You flick a ball from a tabletop, so that the ball lands on the floor 1.20 m below. The ball's initial speed is 2.40 m/s. Use g = 9.80 m/s2.

(a) If the ball is launched off the table horizontally, what is the horizontal distance between the launch point and the point where the ball hits the floor?

(b) If the ball is launched off the table at a 30 degree angle above the horizontal, what is the horizontal distance between the launch point and the point where the ball hits the floor?
