2D Motion F(h) calculation

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    A firefighter, 50.0 m away from a burning building, directs a stream of water from a fire hose at an angle of 40.0° above the horizontal, as in figure. If the speed of the stream is 30.0 m/s, at what height will the stream of water strike the building?

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    Im really not sure how to answer the problem. I know that you are supposed to integrate the height into equation. But our teacher didn't appropriately give us the needed materials.
