Participants in a road race take water from a refreshment station and throw their empty cups away farther down the course. If a runner has a forward speed of 6.20m/s, how far in advance of a garbage pail should he realease his water cup if the vertical distance between the lid of the garbage can and the runner's point of release is 0.50m?

pls help. When i try to solve this problem i first find the t which is time and i got 0.32seconds and then i used d=vt formula to find the d and I got 1.984m. i do not know if it is right. pls help me.
