A brick is thrown upward from the top of a building at an angle of 40° to the horizontal and with an initial speed of 16 m/s. If the brick is in flight for 3.4 s, how tall is the building?

  • physics -

    At time t after throwing,

    Y (measured from the ground) = H + 16sin40*t - 4.9 t^2

    H is the building height.

    Set Y = 0 at t = 3.4s and solve for H

    H = 0 + 4.9*(3.6)^2 - 34.97 = 28.53 m
