physics

a stone projected horizontally from the top of a tower with a speed of 4m/s lands on the level ground at a horizontal distance 25m from the foot of the tower. calculate the height[g=10m/s2].
is it u squared divided by 2g

  1. Horizontal problem:
    u = 4 forever
    d = 25
    so
    t = d/u = 25/4 seconds in air

    vertical problem:
    h = (1/2)g t^2
    h = (1/2)g (d/u)^2
    = (1/2)(10)(625/16)

  2. Dx = Xo*Tf = 25 m.
    4m/s * Tf = 25.
    Tf = 6.25 s. = Fall time.

    h = 0.5g*Tf^2.
