- Homework Statement
- You throw a ball off a cliff with an initial velocity of 25.0 m/s. You start a stopwatch as you throw the ball: the ball rises then falls, and passes your level again after t=0.752 s has elapsed. Sadly, you lose sight of the ball as it falls, and therefore cannot time when the ball hits the ground. Later you find that the ball landed 112 m from the base of the cliff. Assuming that the ball did not "bounce" after landing on the sand, how high up was the cliff? Assume that the ball started exactly 1.60 m above the edge of the cliff.

- Relevant Equations
- I have no idea and thats the problem.

Tried making many squiggles, I don't understand the concept of finding a distance or position based on a time for part of the flight. I have 2 other similar questions and I haven't been able to make any progress on any of them.

I attached a photo of my scribbles, which are all obviously useless and I'm sure I'm literally just making stuff up to try and make an equation work.

Any help is much appreciated!

** note we assume no friction or resistance. I know acceleration is just gravity.
