**Alura**, Monday, September 13, 2010 at 11:43pmI have just recently had to answer a very similar question. My prof. has given me the two general eqns to use:

Y(final)=Y(initial)+V(initial)((T(final)-T(initial))+1/2a(T(final)-T(initial))^2

and

V(final)=V(initial)+a(T(final)-T(initial))

From there, write down your knowns and derive more specific eqns from the general ones... Very vague i know...good luck

**drwls**, Monday, September 13, 2010 at 11:44pmY1 = -(g/2) t^2

Y2 = -33(t-2) -(g/2)((t-2)^2

Set Y1 - Y2 and solve for t.

Use that t to compute Y at that time.

**Hannah**, Tuesday, September 14, 2010 at 3:28pmwhen i solve for t I get an extremely small number like .1998. I don't think I am setting up the problem right or something.
