# Two tall buildings face each other and are at a distance of 180 m from each other. With what velocity must a ball be thrown horizontally from a window 55m above the ground in one building so that the ball enters a window 10.9 m above the ground in the second building?

Let, initial velocity = u

Now, this is projectile motion. We can resolve the motion along X and Y axis.

u = velocity of projection

Since the initial velocity is along X-axis (horizontally)

Initial velocity along x-axis

Initial velocity along y-axis

= Acceleration along x axis

= Acceleration along y axis

Let, time taken to travel 180 m horizontally and (55–10.9) m vertically = t

So,

Motion along the Y axis,

Motion along X the axis

Hence, the ball must be thrown with the velocity
