    Free fall problems, help please

    2. Relevant equations

    V = vi + a*t = .9+9.8*3.2 = 32.26 m/s

    Y = vi*t + ½gt² = 53.056 m

    3. The attempt at a solution

    V = vi + a*t = .9+9.8*3.2 = 32.26 m/s

    Y = vi*t + ½gt² = 53.056 m


    PLEASE NEED SOME HELP URGENT

    That's the correct value of V for the dropped kit. It's also the correct distance fallen by the kit.

    However, the question asks how far below the climber is the kit. So you'll have to account for how far the climber has moved, in order to get the distance between the kit and climber.
