A person standing at the edge of a seaside cliff kicks a stone over the edge with a speed of vi = 23 m/s. The cliff is h = 54 m above the water's surface. How long does it take for the stone to fall to the water?

With what speed does it strike the water?

  • Physics -

    If the initial velocity is horizontal, it has not influence on the time of fall.
    Time of fall is determined by the height, and by gravity.

    h=1/2 g t^2
    solve for t, time.

    Thank you.

  • Physics -

    How would I calculate the speed?

  • Physics -

    the vertical speed is
    vf= g *time

    the horizontal speed is the kicking speed.

    Vftotal=sqrt (Vh^2+ Vvf^2)
