An egg is thrown from the top edge of a 22.9 m high building down onto an unsuspecting person standing on the ground 6.2 m from the base of the building. If the egg is tossed horizontally, at what speed, in m/s, must the egg be thrown such that it lands on the person?

time to fall:
h=1/2 g t^2
t=sqrt(2*22.9/9.8)

horizontal
v=d/t=6.2/t
