For this problem, do I need to solve for any other velocities? I'm a little stuck...I'm not quite sure how to solve problems given only velocity and distance yet.

**drwls**, Saturday, November 3, 2007 at 12:36amYou don't need to solve for other velociites. Calculate the time T that it takes to hit the ground. That time is T = 44.4 m/(15 m/s)

Get the height H from the vertical motion relationship.

(1/2) g T^2 = H

Note that V does not enter since there was no initial vertical velocity component.
