2D Motion

A man stands on the roof of a 15.0m tall building and throws a rock with a velocity of magnitude 30.0m/s at an angle of 33.0 degrees above the horizon. You can ignore air resistance. Calculate:

1) The maximum height above the roof reached by the rock.

2) The magnitude of the velocity of the rock just before it strikes the ground.

3) The horizontal distance from the base of the building to the point where the rock strikes the ground.

4) Draw x-t, y-t, vx-t, and vy-t graphs for the motion.
