A Projectile IS FIRED FROM THE TOP OF A BUILDING WITH AN INITIAL VELOCITY STRAIGH UPWARD AT 40.0 M/SEC . THE TOP OF THE BUILDING IS 50.0 METERS ABOVE THE GROUND.

A) THE MAXIMUN HEIGHT OF THE PROJECTILE ABOVE THE BUILDING.

B) THE TIME FOR THE PROJECTILE TO REACH THE TOP.

A. Vf^2 = Vo^2 + 2gh.

h = (Vf^2 _ Vo^2) / 2g,

h = (0 - (40)^2) / -19.6 = 81.63m.

B. t(up) = (Vf - Vo) / g,

t(up) = (0 - 40) / -9.8 = 4.08s.

C. h = 50 + 81.63 = 131.63m. above ground.

Vf^2 = Vo^2 + 2g*h.

Vf^2 = 0 + 19.6*131.6 = 2580,

Vf = 50.8m/s.

D. t(dn) = (Vf - Vo) / g,

t(dn) = (50.8 - 0) / 9.8 = 5.18s.

T = t(up) + t(dn) = 4.05 + 5.18 = 9.23s

in air.
