Homework Help: Kinematics Question.

  1. Sep 22, 2004 #1
    I have no idea how to do this question. Can some one help


    A flowerpot is dropped from the balcony of an apartment, 28.5m above the ground. At a time of 1 sec after the pot is dropped, a ball is thrown vertically downward from the balcony one story below,26m above the ground. The initial velocity of the ball is 12m/s [down].Does the ball pass the flowerpot before striking the ground? If so, how far above the ground are the two objects when the ball passes the flowetpot.

    Thnx for helping :smile:
