The Flower Pot: A flower pot falls off a windowsill and falls past the window below. It takes .3 s to travel from the top of the window to the bottom of the window which is 2.2 m tall. From what height above the top of the window did the flower pot fall?

Write equations for the times (t1 and t2) that it takes to pass the top and the bottom of the window, in terms of the unknown distance h.

t1 = sqrt(2h/g)

t2 = sqrt[2(h+2.2)/g]

Then, using those equations, write an equation for the time it takes to go from top to bottom of the window (which you know = 0.3s), in terms of the unknown h.

t2 - t1 = 0.3

= sqrt[2(h+2.2)/g] - sqrt(2h/g)

Solve for h.

h=ut +1/2at^2.

2.2=u*.3+1/2*10*(.3)^2

therefore,u=2.2-0.45/.3=5.8.

Taking 'u'=0 and v=5.8m/s.using the equation v^2=u^2+2as,we can caculate 's'=v^2/2a=1.682m.
