Hey guys, just wanted to thank everyone for some help (mainly from other posts) that have saved me quite a headache in the past. Now I am having some major issues with falling objects and formulas and such... I missed about 4 days of class and am wayyyyyyy behind. So, with that said here we go...(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A stone is thrown vertically upward with a speed of 13.5 m/s from the edge of a cliff 66.0 m high. What is the speed of the stone right before hitting the ground? What is the total distance the stone traveled? and lastly, How much later does it reach the bottom of the cliff?

I tried to use the formula:

Y_f=y_i +V_i(t)+1/2gt^2

I come up with what seems like random awnsers and it confuses me Any assistance would be greatly appreciated because this problem gives me one heck of a headache.

Thanks much,

Spd
