Parabola

4)A stone is thrown horizontally from the top of a 25.00-m cliff. The stone lands at a distance of 40.00 m from the edge of the cliff. What is the initial horizontal velocity of the stone?

15.60 m/s

**drwls**, Tuesday, April 1, 2008 at 10:02pm3) parabola is correct

4) time of fall = sqrt (2H/g) = 2.26 s

horizontal travel = 40 = 2.26 * V

V = 17.7 m/s

Parabola would be an acceptable choice.
