2.2 m

#### Explanation:

To solve this kinematics problem, we have to consider motion in both the horizontal and vertical component. We then realise that the t value (time of flight) would be the same for both components.

Vertical component:

Given

and

find t.

Horizontal component:

Given

and

find d.

distance

= speed x time

= (4.330)(0.5097)

= 2.207 m

Thus, the projectile will land 2.2 m away.
