(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. Someone throws a stone horizontally from the top of a cliff and out to the sea. The top of the cliff is 45 metres above the sea. The initial speed of the stone is 30 m/s.

a) if the stone had been dropped vertically, how long would it have taken to reach the sea?

b) when the stone is thrown horizontally, how long does it take to reach the sea?

c) what horizontal distance does the stone travel before hitting the sea?

d) what is the total displacement of the store from it's original point?

2. I will be combining both equations and attempted solutions.

For a) : speed=distance/time

Therefore: s=d/t

st=d

t=d/s

t=45m/30ms

t= 1.5 s?

I am clueless about b, c and d

Please help

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution
