**Steve**, Monday, October 7, 2013 at 5:06pmas it passed the window with speed s, it will fall

st+16t^2 feet in t more seconds

1.5s + 16*9/4 = 1.5s+36 feet

It fell 8*12 = 96 feet, so

1.5s+36=96

s = 40

since s = 32t, t = 1.25 at the 8th floor.

So, in the first 1.25 seconds, it fell

16*25/16 = 25 feet

Looks like it fell from the 10th floor.

Doesn't feel quite right. Better check my math.
