i don't understand...this part: the potential energy change was 2646 sin A - 485 This equals the potential energy change with method 1, or 1323 sin A. Therefore 2646 sin A -485 = 1323 sin A 485 = 1323 sin A can you please explain it in details£¿

Following your thinking, I first got Vo=4.02 m/s = the speed at the top of the window then I use the equation:Vf=Vo+gt, so I got Vf=5.981m/s= the speed at the bottom of the window and then I use the equation: Vf^2-Vo^2=2gd, thus I got d=1.82m = the distance from the roof to ...
