 Posted - 09/08/2007 :  21:41:34 I haven't done this kind of math in years. Please help.A woman weighing 115 pounds, jumps from a bridge, and falls 1,053 feet to the river below. How long did it take for her to hit the water? Please explain all calculations. By the way, this is a true story. Thanx.......Saturn.
