If someone could please help me with the following question I would greatly appreciate it.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

An object falls a distance h from rest. If it travels 0.5h in the last 1.00s, find the time and the height of its fall.

Ok, so for the second half that the object is falling, the velocity is 0.5h m/s, the time is 1.00s, the displacement is 0.5h m, and the acceleration is -9.8 m/s/s. For the first half, the acceleration is also -9.8 m/s/s, and the displacement is also 0.5h. The object is obviously going slower for the first half, so that velocity and time will be different. I'm not sure where to go from here so if anyone is willing to point me in the right direction that would be great. Thanks. :)
