A Hot Wheels car rolls off a table at a speed of 2.36 m/s and hits the floor a distance of 95.1 cm from the table's edge. Determine the height (in cm) of the table.
Here's a hint: It takes
t = 0.951m/2.36 m/s = 0.404 seconds
to hit the ground.
It falls (g/2)t^2 in time t, because it starts out with zero vertical velocity. Compute that distance.
