Eh, from what it looks like, it should just be the change in height that you need to do, which will be in units of miles right? and then you multiply that by the ratio of delta V to altitude change, which I believe is in units of (ft/s)/(change in miles)

A diver springs upward with an initial speed of 2.23 m/s from a 3.0-m board. (a) Find the velocity with which he strikes the water. [Hint: When the diver reaches the water, his displacement is y = -3.0 m (measured from the board), assuming that the downward direction is chosen...
In preparation for this problem, review Conceptual Example 7. From the top of a cliff, a person uses a slingshot to fire a pebble straight downward, which is the negative direction. The initial speed of the pebble is 6.46 m/s. (a) What is the acceleration (magnitude and direct...
