In the figure below, a student at a window on the second floor of a dorm sees his math professor walking on the sidewalk beside the building. He drops a water balloon from 18.0 m above the ground when the prof is 1.00 m from the point directly beneath the window. The professor is 170 cm tall and walks at a rate of 0.450 m/s. How close does the balloon come to hitting the professor? (Enter 0 if the balloon hits the professor.)
