Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0can you put up your equation more clearly? is it t = sqrt(h/16) or t = sqrt(h)/16

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you shouldn't have said seconds. you probably got marked wrong since you answered in seconds. ask your teacher why they marked it wrong. Because your answer is correct.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0unless the problem specified that t was in seconds, you shouldn't have answered in seconds.
