A rock is thrown vertically upward from ground level at time t=0. At time t=1.3s it passes the top of the tall tower, and 1.1s later it reaches its maximum height. What is the height of the tower?

can someone please get me started....tnx in advance :)

  1. The total time T to reach maximum height (where the velocity is zero) is 2.4 s. Use that fact to get the initial velocity Vo.
    Vo = g T
    Vo = 23.5 m/s

    The height of the rock at any time t is
    Y = Vo t - (1/2) gt^2
    Knowing Vo and that Y = H (height) at t=1.3 s, you can solve for H
