    Can you think of any equations that you can use?

    It doesn't matter if you made it up. It still must be placed in the Homework Help forums, where I have moved your thread.

    And you are required to show us the relevant equations, and your attempt at a solution. Show us the kinematic equations of motion that apply to your problem (you can look them up on wikipedia.org if you are not sure).
