V_{i}=25.0 [tex]m/s[/tex]

[tex]\Theta[/tex]=40.0 above the x-axis

You throw a ball at 40 degrees above the horizon at an initial velocity of 25 m/s

The ball lands at the same height as which it was launched.

Is it possible to find the distance traveled (either vertical or horizontal) or the time it took for the ball to land.

2. Relevant equations

Kinematic equations.

3. The attempt at a solution

Seems like this would be pretty simple. but trying to solve for time of distance always is hampered by the initial and final velocities being the same.

So would there be more information needed to solve this?
