Homework Help: physics

Posted by Jon on Wednesday, April 2, 2008 at 5:46pm.

A ball is thrown horizontally at 10.0 m/s from the top of a hill 50.0 m high. How far from the base of the hill would the ball hit the ground?

I don't understand the following explained by Quittich (sp)?

"Since there is no vertical component, the time to hit the ground is the same as if th ball had been dropped from a height of 50.0m. Calculate how long it takes for the ball to fall 50.0m. Take that time and multiply by the horizontal velocity (given as 10.0 m/s)".
