**Reiny**, Tuesday, August 23, 2011 at 1:02pmI think I just answered the same question, but somehow the posting has disappeared.

the equation in that post was

v = √(64h)

so when h = 134

v = √(64*134) = √ 8576 = appr. 92.6

So the velocity at the bottom of a 134-foot hill would be v= 92.607?

*Making a litle more sense to me now. Thank you for your input.
