Kinematics Problem

  1. Jan 16, 2007 #1
    I'm fairly new with this so I hope I've posted at the right place!

    I don't understand how to go about doing the following kinematics problem:

    Two stones are dropped from the edge of a 60-m cliff, the second stone 1.6s after the first. How far below the top of the cliff is the second stone when the seperation between the two stones is 36 m?

    I hope you can help because I have a quiz on this stuff tomorrow!! Thanks in advance.

    ANy help will be greatly appreciated.
