A San Francisco cable car loses its brakes and runs down a hill 30.4 m high. Calculate the velocity of the car at the bottom of the hill.

2. Relevant equations

Height = 30.4 m

Time = ???

Acceleration due to Gravity = 9.8 m/s^{2}

Initial Velocity = 0 m/s

Final Velocity = ???

3. The attempt at a solution

3.1 m/s??

I don't understand this problem. Does this answer look correct??
