    Assuming question wants height of table, Δy.

    Use kinematics equation:
    Δy = viyΔt + (1/2)gΔt²

    Assuming 1.1m/s is horizontal velocity (slides off table), so viy=0
    g=-9.8 m/s²

    Δy=0+(1/2)(-9.8)(0.35²)
    =-4.9(0.35²)
    =-0.060 m
    Floor is 0.06 m below table (not quite a table, usually 0.75 m high)

    Horizontal distance covered:
    vix*Δt
    =1.1*0.35
    =0.385 m.
