Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong here:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A ball is thrown horizontally from the roof of a building 58 m tall and lands 35 m from the base. What was the ball's initial speed?

X0= 0m Y0= 0m

X= 58 m Y= 35 m

Vx=? Vy=0 m/s

Ax=0 m/s/s Ax=-9.8 m/s/s

T=?

35=0+0T-.5(-9.8)T^2

T=2.6 s

58=0+Vx(2.6)

Vx= 22 m/s <----------I know this is wrong
