Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Michael on Saturday, October 13, 2012 at 10:05am.

The fastest recorded pitch in Major League Baseball was thrown by Nolan Ryan in 1974. If this pitch were thrown horizontally, the ball would fall 0.809 meters by the time it reached home plate, 18.3 meters away. How fast was the pitch?

So for i know that change in y displacement is -.809 and acceleration of y is -9.81. Also change in x displacement is 18.3m and initial velocity i think is 0.

I can't seem to put it all together to find the answer, help please!
