Homework Help: Speed acceleration equation help

  1. Nov 16, 2008 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    An auto, moving too fast on a horizontal stretch of mountain road, slides off the road, falling into deep snow 60.0 m below the road and 76.0 m beyond the edge of the road.
    (a) How long did the auto take to fall?
    (b) How fast was it going when it left the road? (in m/s and km/h)
    (c) What was its acceleration 10 m below the edge of the road?

    2. Relevant equations

    unsure if there are any

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I wasnt even sure if I drew the picture correctly, since this is quite confusing for me
    if someone could lead me in the right direction with the formulas that would be used
    I know that both of these are distances.
