3. A stuntman runs off the top of a roof horizontally at a speed of 7.5 m/s, hoping to land on
the roof of an adjacent building. Air resistance is negligible. The horizontal distance
between the two buildings is 4.0 m, and the roof of the adjacent building is 2.0 m below
the jumping-off point. Does the stuntman make it to the rooftop of the adjacent building?
