Physics

From the top of a cliff overlooking a lake, a person throws two stones, as shown in the drawing. The cliff is 39.2 m high. The two stones described have identical initial speeds of v0 = 19.2 m/s and are thrown at an angle θ = 29.2 °, one below the horizontal and one above the horizontal. What is the distance between the points where the stones strike the water? Neglect air resistance.

  1. The two will have the same x velocities (19.2 cos29.2), and the distance traveled will be that number times t. Find the two times by solving in y:
    .5*-9.8t^2 + 19.2sin29.2t = -39.2
    and
    .5*-9.8t^2 - 19.2sin29.2 = -39.2
