## Homework Statement

A falling flowerpot takes 0.2s to fall past a window which is 1.9m above ground. From what height was the pot dropped at?

## Homework Equations

d = v1*t + (1/2)at^2

## The Attempt at a Solution

I'm not sure what to do with the 1.9m above ground...

D = 0*0.2 + (1/2)(9.8m/s^2)(0.2)^2

D = 0.196

The book answer is 3.7m though, which is way off. I'm sure I have to use 1.9m to find the answer, but I'm at a loss right now. Help! Please and thank you!
