A boy is practicing tennis by hitting a ball at a wall. He hits the ball at 0.75 m above the ground. The initial speed of the ball is 20.0 m/s at an angle of 32 degrees above the horizontal. How long does it take for the ball to hit the wall if it is 6.7 m away?

    You can use these two equation: \[y=y_0 +v_0\sin{\alpha}-\frac12 g t^2\] and \[x=v_0 \cos{\alpha}*t\] That's all you need

    Can I use either equation to get the answer or do I have to use both somehow?

    You have to use both, you might like to find t from second equation first, then substitute to first equation.

    Ok, I got an answer for t, but I don't understand why I need to plug in that figure to the first equation since I've already found time.
