Finding the distance a plant falls

  1. Jul 2, 2011 #1
    A freefall problem

    A flowerpot falls off a windowsill and falls past the window below. You may ignore air resistance. It takes the pot .420 s to pass this window, which is 1.90 m high. How far is the top of the window below the windowsill from which the flowerpot fell?
