Concept

Problem: You are fixing the roof of your house when a hammer breaks loose and slides down. The roof makes an angle of 55 with the horizontal, and the hammer is moving at 7.5 m/s when it reaches the edge. Assume that the hammer is moving from the top of the roof to its right edge.What is the horizontal component of the hammers velocity just as it leaves the roof?What is the vertical component of the hammers velocity just as it leaves the roof?
