A stunt man jumps from the top of one building to the top of another building 4.9 m away. after a running start, he leaps at an angle of 16 degrees with respect to the flat roof while traveling at a speed of 5.1 m/s. the other roof is 1.9 shorter than the building from which he jumped. i have to find out his vertical displacement upon reaching the front edge of the lower building with respect to the taller building.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

heres my thoughts on what to do: i can use 16 degrees and 5.1 m/s to find the x and y component of the initial velocity. that's all i've got so far.

any help would be appreciated
