## Homework Statement

A child sitting in a tree throws his apple core from where he is perched (4.0 m high) with a velocity of 5.0 m/s [35 degrees above the horizontal], and it hits the ground right next to his griend.

a) How long does it take for the apple core to hit the ground?

b) How far from the base of the tree will the apple core land?

c) What is the velocity of the apple core on impact?

## Homework Equations

In the pictures below.

## The Attempt at a Solution

I will include pictures of my documents because it is formatted better.

Part a)

Part b) How far from the base of the tree will the apple core land?

Part c) What is the velocity of the apple core on impact?

If typing it out would be better than the pictures I can do that. Just let me know.

Part c is where I am having the most trouble. I am not sure how to find the x component of the final velocity. I used 4.1 m/s in the solution but that is the x component of the initial velocity. If anyone could point out error, and help me figure this out that would be great!

Thanks :)
