the diver acheives a horizontal velocity of 3.75 m/s from a diving platform located 6.0 m above the water. How far from the edge of the platform will the diver be when she hits the water?

Do the vertical problem. (Assume no vertical speed at start)
How long to fall 6 m?
6 = (1/2) g t^2 and g = 9.8
t^2 = 6/4.9
t = 1.11 s
now do the horizontal problem
goes 1.11 s at 3.75 m/s
so 4.15 meters
