Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Li on Sunday, February 22, 2009 at 8:55pm.

A child throws a snowball with a horizontal velocity of 18m/s directly toward a tree, from a distance of 9m and a height above the ground of 1.5 m.

After what interval does the ball hit the tree?
At what height above the ground will the snowball hit the tree?
Determine the snowball's velocity as it strikes the tree.

I was able to figure out that the time is .5s and the height is .3m; according to the back of the book, these are correct. I can't figure out the last answer, though. Can someon eplease help?
