In many locations, old abandoned stone quarries have become filled with water once excavating has been completed. While standing on a quarry wall, a boy tosses a piece of granite into the water below. If he throws the rock horizontally with a velocity of 3.0 m/s and it strikes the water 4.5 m from the base of the wall, how high above the water is the wall?

Alright I think figured out that time = 1.5s
because D = VT
4.5m = 3.0 m/s * T
but where do I go from here?

  • Physics -

    Dh = Vt,
    T = Dh/V = 4.5/3 = 1.5s. = Time in flight = Fall time.

    h = Vo*t + 0.5g*t^2,
    h = 0 + 4.9(1.5)^2 = 11.03m.
