**drwls**, Tuesday, September 8, 2009 at 1:44amWrite equations for the heights of each ball vs time and set them equal. Solve the resulting equation for time. Then compute the vertical height at that time.

y1 = 53.0 - 4.9 t^2

y2 = 25 t - 4.9 t^2

y2 - y1 = 0 = 25 t - 53

t = 53/25 s = 2.12 s

y1 = 31.0 m
