Homework Help: Begging for help

  1. Sep 21, 2005 #1
    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?
