A diver runs horizontally off the end of a diving board with an initial speed of 1.25 m/s. If the diving board is 3.20 m above the water, what is the diver's speed just before she enters the water? (Neglect air resistance.)

1. find the time it takes to fall 3.2m

3.2=1/2 g t^2

then, take that time and find the distance moved horizntally.
d=1.25*t
