## Homework Statement

A stone is dropped from the top of a tall building. It accelerates at a rate of 9.81m/s^2. How long will the stone take to

__pass a window__that is 2.0m high, if the top of the window is 20.0m below the point from which the stone was dropped?

I've already solved the initial velocity when it reached to the window which is 19.81m/s.

So what i needed to solve now is the time when it pass the window that is 2m high.

vi=19.81m/s

d=2M

a=9.81m/s^2

t=?

## Homework Equations

d=Vot+1/2at^2

## The Attempt at a Solution

d=Vot+1/2at^2

2m=19.81m/s(t)+(0.5x9.81m/s^2)t^2

0.1=t+(4.9m/s2)t^2

0.02=t+t^2

The answer is 0.1s, but I am having trouble finding the right answer.
