What is the speed of the ball as it passes the top of the window?

The equation for the speed of the ball, from time t=0 when the ball is released, is

V = Vo + g t

Vo it the initial velocity of the ball. The distance it has travelled at time t, measured vertically downward, is

Y = Vo t + (1/2) g t^2

You know that Y = 25.2 m at t = 2.

Use that information and the last equation to determine Vo. Then use that Vo in the first equation to get the value of V when t = 2.

25.2=Vo(2)-19.6

25.2+19.6=2Vo

45.1=2Vo

Vo=22.55m/s
