(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A student stands at the edge of a cliff and throws a stone horizontally over the edge with a speed of 23.0 m/s. The cliff is h = 22.0 m above a flat horizontal beach.

1. How long after being released does the stone strike the beach below the cliff?

2. With what speed and angle of impact does the stone land?

2. Relevant equations

So far, I've only used this equations:

y-y0=v0y*t-.5*g*t^2

I couldn't find any other equations.

3. The attempt at a solution

I've solved the first part already, the time the stone strikes the beach is 2.1 seconds.

But I'm still stuck on the second part, as I'm confused about which equations to use.
