A stone is thrown with an initial speed of 15m/s at an angle of 53° above the horizontal from the top of a 35m building. If g=9.8m/s^2 and air resistance is negligable, then what is the speed of the rock as it hits the ground?


Expert Answer

Step 1

From this we will get the  time flight of the projectile.

Step 2

Here as per the question it is projected from the top of the buliding which is 35 m heigh form the ground, so here i took -ive.

Step 3


From the equation 1 and 2

we got the value of a...
