Stones are thrown horizontally, with the same initial velocity, from the tops of two different buildings, A and B. The stone from building A lands 4 times as far from the base of the building as does the stone from building B. What is the ratio of building A's height to building B's height?

  • physics -

    since the horizontal speed is the same and does not change, since stone A went 4 times as far, building A is 4 times as tall.

  • physics -

    Since the horizontal speed is the same and the object is in free fall, distance actually equals the square of time. and since the stone from building A spent 4 times as long in the air as stone B, the ratio is 16
