(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

2. Relevant equations

F=ma to find the respective accelerations of the man and the barrel.

The suvat equations.

3. The attempt at a solution

I tried making 2 equations to solve them simultaneously but the values I'm looking to find always cancel out.

I know that s and t will be the same for the barrel and the man when the bottom of the barrel is level with the man's head. But how do I find either s or t?
