Homework Help: Physics(thank you for the help)

Posted by Hannah on Sunday, May 27, 2012 at 6:45pm.

A hot-air balloon is rising upward with a constant speed of 2.45 m/s. When the balloon is 3.22 m above the ground, the balloonist accidentally drops a compass over the side of the balloon. How much time elapses before the compass hits the ground?

I know that average speed equals distance / elapsed time and the question gives the speed and distance so would I set this up as 2.45m/s^ = 3.22m / T ?
