In a stunt for a movie, a remote controlled car is driven horizontally of the edge of a cliff at a speed of 35m/s. The car hits the ground 85m from the base of the cliff. How high is the cliff?

  • physics -

    The car is in the air for a time
    t = 85/35 = 2.429 seconds

    The cliff height is how far the car falls during that time. Calculate it with:

    h = (g/2)*t^2
