A hot-air balloon is descending at a rate of 1.5 when a passenger drops a camera.If the camera is 41 above the ground when it is dropped, how long does it take for the camera to reach the ground?

  • physics-Need units -

    If you do not indicate units, the answers given, if any would be meaningless.

    g=32.2 ft/s² = 9.8 m/s²

    We cannot guess what units you're using.

    In any case, there is a very similar problem posted recently, to which you piggy-backed a question that remain unanswered.
