2 stones are dropped off a 60 m cliff the second stone is droped 1.6 s after the first one. how far below the top of the cliff is the second stone when th seperation between the 2 stones is 36 m?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

so i am trying to use the equation x1=xo+tvo+.5at^2

then x2=xo+(t+1.6)vo+.5a(t+1.6)^2

or should i set my zero point somewhere else like where stone 2 is when the distance between the stones is 36 m?

please give me a lead
