**Quidditch**, Wednesday, September 17, 2008 at 12:06amPassenger height = 2.5m + vt

= 2.5m + (2.2m/s)t

Camera height = (11.6m/s)t + (1/2)(-g)t^2

The camera reaches the passenger when

Passenger height = Camera height

solve t for equal height, then plug t into either equation for the height.

You will find 2 answers for equal height. One is the time going up, and the second is if the time the camera would be at the passenger's height coming down (if the passenger missed the camera on its upward flight).
