**drwls**, Friday, December 16, 2011 at 1:44amLet d be the distance from the drop point to the top of the window.

The time to reach the top is

t = sqrt(2d/g)

The time to reach the bottom is

t' = t + 0.220 = sqrt[2(d+1.14)/g]

= sqrt(2d/g) + 0.22

It's rather messy, but there you have one equation in the single unknown, d. Solve for d.
