On a flat golf course, a golf ball lies 12m from the base of a lamp post. A golfer hits the ball with a club, giving the golf ball an initial velocity of 18 m/s. At 2.9 seconds, after being hit, the golf ball strikes the top of the lamp post. How high (m) is the lamp post?

A baseball is thrown with an initial velocity of magnitude v at an angle of 27.2 with respect to the horizontal (x) direction. At the same time, a second ball is thrown with the same initial speed at a different angle with respect to x. If the two balls land at the same spot, ...

It takes 2.5 s for a small ball released from rest from a tall building to reach the ground. The mass of the ball is 0.05 kg. Calculate the height from which the ball is released. Ok so I have the time, initial velocity, and the acceleration. But the mass totally throws me off...
