Homework Help: physics

Posted by jamie on Thursday, December 11, 2008 at 6:17pm.

Consider that a coin is dropped into a wishing well. You want to determine the depth of the well from the time t between releasing the coin and hearing it hit the bottom. Suppose that t=2.059 s and assume the speed of sound in air is 330 m/s. What is the depth of the well?

Can someone please help, I cant get the right answer.

What I did was (0.5)(-9.80)(2.059^2)= 20.77m

But it is not correct and when I incorporate 330 m/s it gives me really big value.
