										height of the window is 1m and it takes 0.2 seconds to pass, from this data we can find the initial velocity of the stone when it was at the top of window......
by using s=ut+at^2/2
-1=0.2u-0.04g/2
u=-4m/s
let it travelled  distance d before passing through the window
v=-4,u=0(as the particle was dropped) and a=g
d=u^2/2g=16/40=.4m

										Let,u=initial velocity of the stoneh=height above the windows=height of the windowv0=initial velocity of the stone when it passes by the windowt=time taken to pass by the windowg=acceleration due to gravity (10m/s2) The stone will begin with initial velocity 0 m/s.Using 3rd equation of motion,v02 = 2gh+u2v0= $\sqrt{2gh}$Now, using second equation of motion for motion of the stone when it passes by the window.s=v0t+ ½ gt2 $\sqrt{2gh}$ t= s – ½ gt2(Squaring both sides)2ght2 = (s – ½ gt2)2Substituting the given values,2x10xh x 0.04 = (1 – ½ x10x 0.04 )20.8h = (0.64)2So, h = 0.8 m
