**1. A fishing line is cast at 27 m/s at an angle of 33 degrees above the horizontal from the top of a 15m tall bridge. Find the time until the line hits the water below and find its velocity when it hits.**

## Homework Equations

x=x

_{o}+v

_{o}t+1/2at

^{2}

v=v

_{o}+at

## The Attempt at a Solution

I first found my component velocities and then the time by using the x=... equation above. I broke it up into 2 parts: the time it took to leave the bridge to the time it was level with the bridge on its downfall and i got 2.94s. Then i found the time it took to go from the point level with the bridge to the water and got .8s. I then added 2.94+.8=3.74s*.

To find the velocity i plugged my numbers into v=... equation above and got 22.69m/s*.

Someone please check and see if I did this correctly! I'm not sure if I was supposed to break it into 2 parts to find the time!
