Having trouble with the equation to solve the problem.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A flowerpot falls from the ledge of an apartment building. A person in an apartment below, coincidentally in possession of a high-precision timing system, notices that it takes 0.20 seconds for the pot to fall past his 4.0 m high window. How far above he top of the window is the ledge from which the pot fell? ( Neglect any effects due to air resistance.)
