Extremesports enthusiasts have been known to jump off the top of El Capitan, a sheer granite cliff of height 910m in Yosemite National Park. Assume a jumper runs horizontally off the top of El Capitan with speed 5.0m/s and enjoys a freefall until she is 150m above the valley floor, at which time she opens her parachute .
Q: how long is the jumper in freefall? ignore air resistance

Without air resistance, the horizontal velocity does not matter.
The free fall is over a vertical distance of 150910=760m
S=v0t(1/2)gt² where v0=0
t=sqrt(2S/g)
=sqrt(2*760/9.81)
=12.45 s.

h=HH(o) =910150 =760 m/s
h=g•t^2/2,
t=sqrt(2•h/g) = sqrt(2•760/9.8)=
=sqrt (155)=12.45 s.
