,T H=ts [total 14 points] Heather and Jerry are standing on a bridge 57m above the river. Heather throws a rock straight down with a speed of 18m/s. Jerry at exactly the same instant of time, throws a rock straight up with the same speed. Ignore air resistance. (Gravitational acceleration is g = 9.8 m/sz). PartA. How much time elapses between the first splash and the second splash? Express your answer using two significant figures. {ewg Hea+naa Ufrt): b* V"t - *gP , VntD = 4o - Tb J.nU tjrrt) = V.+)/ot -*5tt , VrLt): V" -7b' Uthon Trwu\ t>ock c6yva hocL +o avyw! posi+ur! :V" .i/ V"-- tgmls Uu :o : Vrt -*JL' - tt l,L - {Zt) r. ^;' -_ fr sa:'::! ='1 0 -2v' = J -€ q.e#t,-= 3' 7 s r*;: Part B.
