HELP!!
A projectile is launched straight up at 62.5 m/s from a height of 73.5 m, at the edge of a sheer cliff. The projectile falls, just missing the cliff and hitting the ground below.
(a) Find the maximum height of the projectile above the point of firing.
(m)
(b) Find the time it takes to hit the ground at the base of the cliff.
(s)
(c) Find its velocity at impact.
(m/s)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0b) let the time taken to fall is t Using second equation of motion y = ut + 0.5 at^2 73.5 = 62.5 * t  0.5 * 9.8 t^2 solving for t t = 13.8 s the time taken to fall is 13.8 s
