A baseball is thrown with an initial velocity of 20 ms at an angle of 30 degrees with the horizontal. How high did it go if it was released and caught 2 meters from the ground?

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

0=Vi^2 + 2ad

0=(20Sin30)2 + 2 X (-9.8)d

19.62d=100

d=100/19.62

d=5.0m, but this is wrong.... Would I mabey need to add 2m to my answer beacuse it is projected from a 2m height? therefore it will go 7m??
