AS Physics Kinematics Question

  1. Nov 22, 2011 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    This is a multi-choice question in one of the past papers I'm doing in preparation for my upcoming exam. All info is provided in the picture attached.

    2. Relevant equations
    SUVAT Equation most likely apply, but unsure how to go about it.

    3. The attempt at a solution
    Breaking down acceleration into base units ms-2 and all of the choices have 2h as the numerator meaning that the denominator must be a squared time. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    Use the equation s=ut+0.5at^2

    try to calculate the distance h AND h+x using this equation....then u will get the answer.....

    p.s : it's D right ?
