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 ?

**bobpursley**, Sunday, May 27, 2012 at 6:54pmYou are absolutely on the wrong track.

Compass:

vi=2.45m/s

hi=3.22

hf=0

hf=Hi+vi*t-4.9t^2 solve for t. Notice it is a quadratic.

**Elena**, Sunday, May 27, 2012 at 6:56pmWhen compass begins to move its velocity is directed upwards and it moves until the velocity becomes zero.

hₒ =vₒ•t1-g•t1²/2

v=vₒ -gt1.

0 = vₒ -g•t1

t1= vₒ/g =2.45/9.8 =0.25 s.

hₒ =vₒ²/2•g =2.45²/2•9.8 =0.306 m

H =hₒ + h = 0.306+3.22 =3.526 m.

Downward motion

H =g•t2²/2

t2=sqrt(2•H/g) = sqrt (2•3.526/9.8) =0.85s.

t =0.25 +0.85 = 1.1 s.
