While exploring the canopy of the rainforest in equatorial South America, Anastasia falls from a branch 43.0 meters high. Exactly 1.6 seconds later Joe falls from the same branch. How high above the ground is Joe when Anastasia splats into the mud below?

  • Physics -

    time to fall Aastasia; h=1/2 g t^2 solve for t.

    Now, subtract 1.6 from that. That gives the falling time for Joe.

    h'=43-1/2(9.8)t^2

    thanks!
