Solution Summary

The solution calculates the height at which the camera reaches a passenger on its way up.

Solution Preview

Let the ground be the origin
Let distances above the ground be indicated by x
Let t=0 be the time when her friend throws her the camera
Equation for the hot air balloon:
x=x0+ut+1/2 a t ^2
x=2.5+2.2 t (x0=2.5 since it is 2.5 meters high when t=0 i.e. when the camera is thrown up, and is ...
