okay, i have a few questions from school i can't solve, please help me...thanks!

1. A Pentium 1 computer is discovered in a room, which is 4.5m above the ground. A person walks by and chucks the computer out the room window with an upwards velocity of 6.0m/s. How long does it take before the computer hits the ground?

2. To help pay his bills, Bill works as a roofer, laying down one shingle after another. One day, Bill dropped a roof tile off the top of a building. An observer with a stopwatch inside the bulding notics that it takes 0.20s for the tile to pass his/her window, whose height is 1.6m. How far above the top of this window is the roof?

3. While Bill is going through his driving test, he unfortunately passes over a speed trap which is set up with 2 pressure-activated strips placed across the road, 110m apart. Bill was speeding along at 33m/s while the speed limit was 21 m/s. At the instant the car activates the first strip, Bill begins slowing down. What minimum deceleration is needed in order that the average speed is within the limit by the time the car crosses the second marker?
