    elementary kinematics problem

    You see a 10m tall building nearby and you want to throw a snowball up and onto its roof. You notice a telepone line running accoss the possible path of your snowball; the telephone line is 20 m off the ground and is 5 m in front of the building (measured horizontally). You decide to throw the snowball so that is just goes over the telepohne line and just reaches the roof of the building. HOW FAR from the building should you stand and with what initial velocity should you throw the ball?
