aaarrrggghhhh, feet and inches and stuff :(

anyway

if g = -32 ft/s^2

then I will have to admit that the distance fallen from a still start is

s = 16 t^2

(not r^2 by the way, falls straight down, not in a circle)

s = 16 (64) = 1024 answer B

which we did not need a calculator for because we have

s = 2^4 * 2^3 * 2^3

which is 2^10

which we all know is

1024
