A stone is dropped from the top of a cliff

    A stone is dropped from the top of a cliff. It is seen to hit the ground below after 3.30 s. How high is the cliff?

    Use the equations of motion:
    [tex]h = v_0 t + \frac{1}{2}gt^2[/tex]
    Where [tex]v_0[/tex] is the initial velocity (=0) and g is the acceleration due to gravity.

    Oy! Some people never learn!

    The identical question was moved to the HOMEWORK section where it belongs. Please continue there. This thread is closed.
