**drwls**, Wednesday, October 5, 2011 at 8:07amYou 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.

**tchrwill**, Wednesday, October 5, 2011 at 12:43pmI 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.
