Tossing Your Lunch. Henrietta is going off to her physics class, jogging down the sidewalk at a speed of 2.55m/s . Her husband Bruce suddenly realizes that she left in such a hurry that she forgot her lunch of bagels, so he runs to the window of their apartment, which is a height 37.6m above the street level and directly above the sidewalk, to throw them to her. Bruce throws them horizontally at a time 6.00s after Henrietta has passed below the window, and she catches them on the run. You can ignore air resistance.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

my question: With what initial speed must Bruce throw the bagels so Henrietta can catch them just before they hit the ground? Take free fall acceleration to be g=9.80m/s^2 .

#2) Where is Henrietta when she catches the bagels? Take free fall acceleration to be g=9.80m/s^2 .

can someone help me with telling me what formula i need? and can you explain why you picked the formula? i always have trouble picking formulas
