Solve this equation for t:

(1/2) g t^2 = H = 18.6 m

is this equation from kinematics?

You should have seen the equation in your text by now. It is the solution to Newton's second law of motion when the acceleration (g) is constant and the initial velocity is zero.

You can call it kinematics, mechanics or physics. When I attended college, kinematics meant something else.
