I miseed a day of school when they taught this topic here is a sample question, If someone can help me learn how to do these types of questions I would be most grateful(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Sam Dupher hits a gold ball horizontally off a 24.0m high cliff with a speed of 40.0 m/sec. How far from the base of the cliff will the ball strike the ground?

So far What I have is...

In Y Dir

Displacement = -24.0

acceleration = -9.81 m/s^2

Vi= 40 m/s

t=?

dx= 40m/s*t

See my problem is I do not know how to solve for t.

I would really like to understand this so if anyone can help ! please do
