1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

If we simultaneously throw two tennis balls horizontally from the top of a building, one at 10 m/s and the other at 14 m/s. Neglecting the air resistance, which one will hit the ground first???

2. Relevant equations

i dont think we use equations, but we have to consider the speed of each ball and how they are thrown horizontally??

3. The attempt at a solution

I think the ball with 10 m/s should hit the ground first because it wont reach far and eventually fall vertically from the top of buliding ?? please help out??
