    ok, so using the position function, you see that \[\Delta y = .5 g t^2 \] and \[\Delta y = .5g (t/3)^2 = (.5 g t^2) / 9\] when t =t/3 so essentially, you have, h-h/9= 8h/9

    the motion formula is \(S=ut + \frac{1}{2} at^2\), as u=0, and a=g, it simplifies to \(h=\frac{1}{2} aT^2\) when u=0, t=T/3, sub it in to get \(S= \frac{1}{2} a\frac{T^2}{9}=\frac{\frac{1}{2} aT^2}{9}=h/9\) subtracting the remaining height givens 8h/9|dw:1354619702849:dw|

    substitute the values u=0, and t=T/3 into S=ut+1/2at^2

    then, since when T/3 --> h/9 , then at that time, the object is h - h/9 above the ground, right?|dw:1354620913980:dw|
