Two acrobats, each of 72.0 kg, launch themselves together from a swing, holding hands. Their velocity at launch was 6.80 m/s and the angle of their initial velocity relative to the horizontal was 32.0 degrees upwards. At the top of their trajectory, their act calls for them to push against each in such a way that one of them becomes stationary in mid-air and then falls to the safety net while the other speeds away, to reach another swing at the same height at that of the swing they left. What should be the distance (in m) between the two swings?

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I can calculate the maximum height they reached, but what I dint understand is when they push each other ...

thanks for the help
