A tennis ball is thrown horizontally at a speed of 10 m/s from the top of a building 78.4 meters high. How long does it take the ball to hit the street?

  • physics -

    The answer has nothing to do withe the 10 m/s horizontal velocity com[ponent.

    Just calculate how long it takes for an object to fall 78.4 m

    Y = (1/2) g t^2

    (ignoring air resistance)

    Solve for t.

  • physics -

    Exactly as long as it takes to fall 78.4 meters since it had zero initial vertical velocity (only horizontal).
    (1/2)(9.8) t^2 = 78.4
