I have a HW problem that says:

A car drives horizontally off the edge of a cliff that is 32.7 m high. The police at the scene of the accident note that the point of impact is 153 m from the base of the cliff. How fast (in terms of km/h) was the car traveling when it drove off the cliff?

I've worked it out like 10 times. I only have one more chance to get it wrong on my online homework.

Someone please help...... :cry:

How much time did the car have to fall?
If the car is travelling at a constnat speed horizontally and it travelled 153m, how fast was it travelling in that amount of time?
