A man stands on the roof of a building of height 13.7 m and throws a rock with a velocity of magnitude 28.0 m/s at an angle of 27.5 degrees above the horizontal.
The maximum height that the projectile reaches is given by (v*sin x)^2/2*g where v is the initial velocity and x is the angle made with the horizontal. Substituting the values from the problem the maximum height is (28*sin 27.5)^2/19.6 = 8.528 m. But the rock is thrown from the top of a...
