A steel ball rolls with a constant velocity across a table top 1.063 m high. It rolls off and hits the ground +0.229 m horizontally from the edge of the table. How fast was the ball rolling?

2. Relevant equations

d=.5at^2

X=Vxt

3. The attempt at a solution

I first did

1.063=.5(9.8)t^2

got the time to be .4657 seconds

then put it in the X=Vxt

and got Vx to be .4916, and I am not sure where to go from there
