A stone is thrown horizontally outward from the top of a bridge.The stone is released 19.6m above the street below.The initial velocity of the stone is 5.0m/s.Determine the magnitude and direction of the velocity of the projectile "just" before it strikes the street.

$\begin{array}{1 1}20m/s,\quad 76^{\circ}\\16 m/s, \quad 38^{\circ}\\16 m/s, \quad 76^{\circ}\\20 m/s, \quad 38^{\circ}\end{array} $

Can you answer this question?

Answer : $20 m/s, \quad 76^{\circ}$
$\Rightarrow t=2.0m/s$
$v_y=v_{0y}+(-g)t\Rightarrow v_y=-19.6m/s$
$v=\sqrt{v_x^2+v_y^2}\Rightarrow v=20.0m/s$
$\Rightarrow 76^{\large\circ}$
The direction is $76^{\large\circ}$ south of east.
