## Homework Statement

An object falls a distance h from rest. If it travels 0.57h meters in the last 1.00 s,

I need to know the time and the height of its fall.

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

Here what I have:

Since it traveled .57H meters in the last second, I used y=vt+.5gt^2, and got .57H=4.9 since the time elapsed is 1 second and it came from rest, so the inital velocity is zero. Then I solved for H, getting around 8.59 m. Then with this I set up 8.59=4.9t^2, and solved for T, getting around 1.325 seconds. Was these the right methods?
