The ball falls at 9.8m/s^2

Because the ball has an initial fall velocity of 0 we can say the ball fell 1.6m at 9.8m/s^2.

We need to find how long it took the ball to fall.

1.6m = 1/2(9.8)t^2

0.57 = t

Now we need to see how fast the ball was moving horizontally when it fell off the table.

it made it 20 meters before it hit the ground so,

20m = v(.57s)

v is the velocity

divide both sides by .57s

35.09m/s = v
