Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you can solve it by conservation of energy... 1/2*v^2 = g*h Although you exclude drag from the air in this equation.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well, the problem probably assumes you know the acceleration of gravity, which is 32f/s^s. So plug that into the motion equation v^2 = v0^2 + 2as, and solve for s.
