(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

If you launch a ball horizontally, moving at a speed of 2.24 m/s from a table that is 0.77 m tall, how far out from the base of the table will the launched ball land?

Answers:

a) 0.001m b) 0.9m c) 3.17m d) 8.5m

2. Relevant equations

v=v_{o}+at

v^{2}=vo^{2}+2ax

x=v_{o}t+^{1}/_{2}at^{2}

3. The attempt at a solution

i COMPLETELY forgot how to do projectile thing. like i remember some of it but not fully. i know you do the table for x and y then solve for like v, v_{o}, a, t, d all that good stuff. but i dont know if the speed that was given is for the x or y. im thinking the y. because if it was for x it would be the same for v and v_{o}. someone please help i have finals on monday and tuesday!

thank you so much!!!
