In order to open the clam it catches, a seagull will drop the clam repeatedly onto a hard surface from high in the air until the shell
cracks.
If a seagull flies to a height of 28.7 m, how
long will the clam take to fall? The accelera-
tion of gravity is 9.8 m/s2 .

• Physics -

28.7 = (1/2)(9.8) t^2

• Physics -

How do you solve for t
