Please explain steps and how to get there. please Thank you!!!

**bobpursley**, Monday, September 14, 2009 at 8:30pmbreak the initial velocity into vertical and horizontal components with the sine and cosine.

horizontal distance=vihorz*time

solve for time in air.

in the vertical:

hfinal-hinitial= vivert*time-4.9t^2

solve for hfinal-hinitial.
