s = 1/2 gt^2  v = 0 + g(t1) now u = v then, 1/3 s = v(1) + 1/2 g(1)^2 s = 1/2 gt^2  from these two solve or 's' and 't' rest should be okay

Ok....i Did by this way: h = 1/2 g t^2 Dn = u + a/2 (2n1) h/3 = a/2(2t1).....?

in the formula you used @Yahoo! 'n' is the nth second, in your case, n= t1 .. you already know h= 1/2 gt^2 also h/3 =g/2 (2t 3) taking g=10, i get h=45..someone please confirm ?

you got 148 right? by another plausible method, i am also getting 148, so that should be right,,my logic is thus, flawed//hmm..

here is what i did,, we h = 1/2 g t1 ^2 ....(1) where t1 is total time taken . let t2 be time before it comes to last second of the journey, thus t1  t2 =1 => t2 = t1 1....(2) we know h h/3 = 1/2 g t2 ^2 2h/3 = 1/2 g t2 ^2 ...(3) using 1,2,and 3 eqns, we can solve for h, t1 and t2 .. by taking g=10, i approximately get h=148.4 something.. which should be the ans.. unless ofcorse,,there is some flaw in this also! :
