acceleration due to gravity questions

Determine the time of fall when an object is dropped if the average velocity of the falling object was 12m/s?

• Physics -

More information is required. Didn't they tell you the distance fallen?

Divide it by the average velocity

• Physics -

no... but apparently when an object is falling its acceleration is 9.81m/s^2
