    thrown ball: y = 21*t - ½*9.8*t²

    dropped ball: y = 39 - ½*9.8*t²

    set y = y; gravity terms cancel

    t = 39m / 21m/s = 1.9 s

    A 7.6 m tall window? Really?

    Passing the window, Vavg = h / t = 7.6m / 0.214s = 35.5 m/s

    But also Vavg = ½(u + v)

    where u is the velocity at the top of the window

    and v is the velocity at the bottom.

    Furthermore, v = u + gt = u + 9.8m/s²*0.214s = 2.10 m/s

    so Vavg = 35.5 m/s = ½(u + u + 2.10m/s) = u + 1.05m/s

    u = 34.5 m/s

    h = u² / 2g = (34.5m/s)² / 2*9.8m/s² = 61 m

    bonus:

    If you meant a window of height 1.6 m, then

    Vavg = 7.48 m/s = u + 1.05m/s

    u = 6.43 m/s

    h = u² / 2g = (6.43m/s)² / 19.6m/s² = 2.1 m

    #5 was 61 m but #4 was not 1.9s, can you try again? Thanks
