(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A grasshopper leaps into the air from the edge of a vertical cliff, as shown in the figure below.

2. Relevant equations

Use information from the figure to find the height of the cliff.

3. The attempt at a solution

The first question was to find the initial speed of the grasshopper. I found this to be 1.5m/s.

I have tried using this equation to get the height of the cliff but it isn't right:

h = ut + (1/2)gt^{2}where u is the initial velocity. Any help is greatly appreciated.
