d1 = 0.5g*t^2 = 4.9*(1.5)^2 = 11 m. =

Distance traveled by 1st stone after

1,5 s.

V^2 = Vo^2 + 2g*d.

V^2 = 0 + 19.6*11 = 215.6

V = 14.68 m/s = Velocity of 1st stone after 1.5 s.

d1 = Vo*t + 0.5g*t^2 = 200-11.

16.68t + 4.9t^2 = 189

4.9t^2 + 16.68t - 189 = 0.

Use Quadratic Formula.

Tf = 4.74 s. = Fall time or time for each stone to reach Gnd.

The 2nd Stone.

d = Vo*t + 0.5g*t^2 = 200 m.

Vo*4.74 + 4.9*(4.74)^2 = 200

4.74Vo + 110.1 = 200

4.74Vo = 200-110.1 = 89.9

Vo = 19 m/s.

Change 16.68 to 14.68. Then Tf will be

4.89 s.

Change all 4.74s to 4.89.

Vo = 89.9/4.89 = 18.4 m/s. = Initial velocity of 2nd stone.
