Given:An egg is thrown nearly vertically upward from a point near the cornice of a tall building. It just misses the cornice on the way down and passes a point a distance 36.0 m below its starting point at a time 5.00 s after it leaves the thrower's hand. Air resistance may be ignored.Asked:what is the initial speed?How High does it move above the starting point?
