a stone dropped from the roof at a velocity of 6m/s2 and reaches the ground with the velocity of 18m/s.how high is the roof from the ground

• physics -

6 m/s^2 is not a velocity. It is an acceleration.

See the first "related question" below, which makes the same mistake.

• physics -

14.69 meters
