**bobpursley**, Monday, January 26, 2009 at 5:24pmFigure the vertical velocity and height the bolt when it breaks off, in terms of a.

Then, using that hi, and vi, you can figure a from that equation.

hf=hi+Vi*time-1/2 g time^2 you know Vi, Hi in terms of a, and hf=0

There is a little algebra in this.
