A batted baseball leaves the bat at an angle of 35.0 degrees celcius above the horizontal and is caught by an outfielder 390 ft from home plate at the same height from which it left the bat. what was the initial speed of the ball and How high does the ball rise above the point where it struck the bat?

2. Relevant equations

D= v_{0}t

D= v_{0}sin 35 degrees

3. The attempt at a solution

I tried to figure it out using both the equations, but I guess I must be doing something wrong, does anyone know what equation I'm not using?
