**drwls**, Tuesday, October 18, 2011 at 9:51pmThe key is to assume that he takes off horizontally. Few Olympic divers do that. You are in the air less and can't do as many maneuvers.

The time to hit the waterl is in this case

t = sqrt(2H/g) = 1.429 seconds

Where he lands doesn't matter. That depends upon his horizontal takeoff velocity
