A boy wishes to throw a rock into the river below the cliff where he is standing. The cliff is 50 M high and he can throw with a horizontal velocity of 30 m/s. how long does it take for the rock to reach the water? How far, in the horizontal direction, does the rock land?

  • Physics -

    You are looking for range. Range = Vh x t
    Vh = 30 m/s
    t= ?
    We know d= 50 m, viv = 0 m/s a=9.8
    d=vit + 1/2 at ^2
    50=0 + 1/2 9.8 t ^2
    50 = 4.9 t^2
    t = 3.1 s

    Range = (30) (3.1)
    = 95.8 m
    Hope this helped !
