Homework Help: When will I hear this ball strike the ground?

  1. Mar 23, 2008 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    you drop a ball over the edge of a 350m high cliff. If T=15 deg celcius when will hear it strike the ground?


    2. Relevant equations
    time=distance/speed


    3. The attempt at a solution
    do i just divide the 350m by the speed of sound in air at 15 deg celcius?
