Homework Help: A free falling object

  1. Sep 18, 2009 #1
    Can somebody please show me how to solve this problem?

    A flowerpot falls off a windowsill and falls past the window below. You may ignore air resistance. It takes the pot 0.420 s to pass this window, which is 1.90 m high. How far is the top of the window below the windowsill from which the flowerpot fell?
    Thank you

    Welcome to Physics Forums.

    We will help you with your homework, but we won't do it for you. What are the relevant equations? What have you tried already? What are your thoughts on the problem? We have a homework template for a reason, please use it.
