Homework Statement


While exploring the canopy of the rainforest in equatorial South America, Anastasia falls from a branch 50.0 meters high. Exactly 1.1 seconds later Joe falls from the same branch. How high above the ground is Joe when Anastasia splats into the mud below?


Homework Equations


V=Vo + at
X=1/2(Vo -V)T
X=VoT + 1/2at2
V2=Vo2 + 2ax

(If a 2 is after a letter then it means squared)
X=displacement
A=Acceleration
T=Tome
Vo=Initial Velocity
V=Velocity



The Attempt at a Solution


I have no idea.
