A person is on the roof of a building, 46.0 m above the ground. His teacher, who is 1.80 meters tall, is walking toward the building at a constant speed of 1.20 m/s. If the person wishes to drop the egg on his teacher's head, where should the teacher be when the person releases the egg?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

So I know that I need to set two equations equal to each other to get the position the teacher needs to be for the egg to drop on him. So should I use [itex] x = v_{y}_{0}t + \frac{1}{2} a_{x}t^{2} [/itex] for the egg, and [itex] x = x_{0} + v_{x}_{0}t + \frac{1}{2} a_{x}t^{2} [/itex]?

Thanks
