(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A rock is dropped from a sea cliff, and the sound of it striking the ocean is heard 3.7s later. If the speed of sound is 340m.s how high is cliff?

2. Relevant equations

Ttotal=trock+tsound distance=Vsound*tsound ts=340m/s-trock x=x+vt+.5at^2 quadratic equation

3. The attempt at a solution

did each of these equations to get d=340m/s(3.7- 3.92) its wrong! PLEASE help :(
