A fireman 52.0 m away from a burning building directs a stream of water from a ground-level fire hose at an angle of 34.0° above the horizontal. If the speed of the stream as it leaves the hose is 40.0 m/s, at what height will the stream of water strike the building?

2. Relevant equations

Voy=Vo sin θ

t= Voy / g

y= Voy t - 1/2 g t^{2}

3. The attempt at a solution

Voy= 40.0 m/s sin 34.0

Voy= 22.37 m/s

t= 22.37 m/s / 9.8 m/s^{2}

t= 2.28s

y= 22.37 m/s (2.28s) - 1/2 (9.8 m/s^{2})(2.28s)^{2}

y= 25.53 m
