I just need alittle help on getting started with just the formulas.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

There are just two question.

1) A baseball thrown at 100.8 mi/hr. If the pitch were thrown horizonally with this velocity how far would the ball travel vertically by the time it reaches home plate 60.0 ft away?

Do i need to worry about the time it takes?

2) If a student stands at the edge of a cliff and throws a rock horizonally over the edge with a speed of 18.0 m/s, The cliff is 50 m above a flat. How long after being released does the rock strile the beach below the cliff? With what speed and angle of the impact does it land.

I do know the the angle = tan-1 (Vy/Vx)

I am just struggling a bit on these two.

Thanks
