Question

You’re at the top of a mountain, which slopes down at a 45 degree angle below the horizontal. You throw a pebble horizontally from the top of the slope, with an initial speed of 10 m/s. How much time does the pebble spend in free-fall before hitting the sloping ground? (Round to the nearest integer number of seconds.)
