## Homework Statement

An object is released from a height of 50m. How far has the object travelled during the 3rd second of fall?

## Homework Equations

d = Vi*T + 1/2at^2

Doesn't work though - answer provided is 24.5m.

## The Attempt at a Solution

I did a simple distance at 3 seconds with 9.81 m/s^2 as acceleration, got 29.43m. Using the formula above I got 44.45m - again, not 24.5m as provided for answer.

Thanks a lot!
