A STONE IS DROPPED FROM A CLIFF SOME HIGH. DISREGARDING AIR RESISTENCE, (a) HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE THE STONE TO REACH THE GROUND? (b) WHAT IS ITS SPEED WHEN IT STRIKE THE AROUND?

    You need to provide numbers like the cliff height. "Some high" won't cut it.

    Please turn off your caps lock. It is like being yelled at.

    I assume you are looking for a general expression for the time it takes an object to fall from a cliff of height "h".

    From h = Vot + gt^2/2
    where H = the height of the cliff
    Vo = the initial velocity = 0
    g = acceleration due to gravity and t = the time of the fall.
    Solving for t yields
    t = sqrt(2h/g).

    Choose your "h" and you have the time of the fall.

    h=100m t=200/9.8= 20.408 sec.
