The Grand Canyon

The time t (in seconds)that it takes for an object to fall a distance of s feet is given by the formula

t= radical symbol s/4

In some places, The Grand Canyon is one mile (5,280 feet) deep. How long would it take a stone dropped over the edge of the canyon to hit bottom?

please help

  1. do you have a calculator?
    find (√5280)/4

    other option, just enter 5280^.5/4 into Google.
