Remember the basic equations of motion for particles like this

[tex]
v = u + a t
[/tex]

[tex]
s = s_0 + u t + (1/2) a t^2
[/tex]

[tex]
v^2 = u^2 + 2 a s
[/tex]

where v is the final velocity, u is the initial velocity, s is the displacement, a the acceleration and t the time.

Also remember that you are going to be assuming no air resistance, so horizontal velocity will remain constant.

Applying these formulae to verticle and horizontal components of the initial velocity should get you all of those

another formula that may come in handy is...
2a∆y=V²-Vo²

where Vo=initial velocity.
since it includes horrizontal motion, be sure to use the right components when pluging in the variables, expecially for velocity. good luck
