Concept

Problem: A small rock is projected from the ground with velocity with magnitude v0 and direction 53.1° above the horizontal. A tall building is a horizontal distance of 26.0 m from where the rock was launched. The rock strikes the building 2.00 s after being launched. Neglect air resistance and assume the ground is level. At what vertical height above the ground does the rock strike the building?
