# An egg is thrown horizontally off a roof, which is 60 meters high, with an initial velocity of 6.5 m/s. How long does it take to hit the ground, and how far does it go in the x direction?

##### 2 Answers

It will take

It will go

#### Explanation:

The egg will come down because of gravity but due to its imparted horizontal velocity,it will move forward from the bottom of the roof!

So,if it takes time

Given,

So,in this time if it moves a distance of

Then,we find

Egg is thrown with horizontal velocity. Therefore, initial vertical velocity of egg

#h=ut+1/2g t^2#

Inserting given vales we get

#60=0xxt+1/2(9.81) t^2#

#=> t=sqrt((60xx2)/9.81)#

#=> t=3.5\ s#

Distance traveled in
