Janet jumps off a high diving platform with

a horizontal velocity of 2.22 m/s and lands in
the water 1.5 s later.
The acceleration of gravity is 9.8 m/s2 .
a) How high is the platform?
Answer in units of m.

    H = (g/2) t^2

    t is the time it takes to fall and you know what g is.

    H is the answer
