Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Lindsay on Monday, January 14, 2008 at 3:31pm.

During World War 2, there were some cases where the crew fell out of burning aircraft without a parachute and survived the fall. Assume that the crew member reached a constant terminal speed of 128.3 km/hr prior to hitting a stack of loose hay. If the crew member can survive an acceleration of 34.0 g, where g is the gravitational constant, and assuming uniform acceleration, how high a stack of hay is required for the crew member to survive the fall?

I'm stuck on which eqaution I need to use for this.
