Free Falling Spiderman. I need to find height

  1. Sep 12, 2011 #1
    Spiderman steps from the top of a tall building. He falls freely from rest to the ground a distance of h he falls a distance of h/4 in the last 1.0 s of his fall. What is the height h of the building?





    The attempt at a solution is on the photo.
    I am stuck and don't know where to go to get rid of the h. What can I do?

    for these type of problems, its always good to specify all the requirements

    you almost got it , but i think you couldn't see how to proceed because it got messy and confusing
