# At what height objects will pass each other?

## Homework Statement

An object is thrown downward with an initial (t = 0) speed of 10 m/s from a height of 60 m above the ground. At the same instant (t = 0), a second object is propelled vertically upward from ground level with a speed of 40 m/s. At what height above the ground will the two objects pass each other?

first object
t0 = 0
V = 10 m/s
H = 60
Second object
t0 = 0
V = 40 m/s
H = 60

## Homework Equations

d = Vi . t + 1/2 a t2

## The Attempt at a Solution

This equation doesn't see me to work since we need to find at which height objects will pass

hi patelneel1994! call the height of either object above the ground "d", and rememb
er that the two objects start at different values of d …

show us what you get So instead of d I should put h. Find height for each object separately!

d or h, it doesn't matter, so long as you use the same symbol for each, but start them at different values • 1 person
I got 41 m. Thanks
