A paintball is fired from a gun horizontally with a speed of 110 m/s. If it hits a point 14 cm below the target:
A) What is the total time the paintball is in the air?
B) How far is the target from the paintball?

Simple projectile motion. Draw a picture.

yu have to figure out how long it takes to fall 14 cm
.14 = 4.9t^2
t = 0.169 sec
so, at 110 m/s, the ball travels horizontally 110*.169 = 18.6 m
