1. Vo = 40m/s[30o].
Xo = 40*Cos30 = 34.64 m/s.
Yo = 40*sin30 = 20 m/s.

Y = Yo + g*Tr.
0 = 20 - 9.8Tr, Tr = 2.04 s.

ha = Yo*Tr + 0.5g*Tr^2.
ha = 20*2.04 - 4.9*2.04^2 = 20.4 m. = Ht. above tower.

h = 20.4 + 60 = 80.4 m. Above gnd.

0.5g*Tf^2 = 80.4.
4.9Tf^2 = 80.4, Tf = 4.05 s. = Fall time.

a. Tr+Tf = 2.04 + 4.05 = 6.09 s. To hit gnd.

b. D = Xo*(Tr+Tf) = 34.64 * 6.09 = 211 m.
