A toy car in the figure below runs off the edge of a table that is h = 1.375 m high. The car lands d = 0.375 m from the base of the table. How long did it take the car to fall?
The time to fall can be calculated from the cliff height H alone, assuming it starts the dive horizontally.
T = sqrt (2H/g)
g is the acceleration of gravity.
