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.

A lot of my old math notes were lost during a military move. Thanx for the help. Forgot how to multiply 32ft/sec^2 times 2.

However for this problem you need to divide 32 by 2.

Thanx, however, I am no longer skilled in physics. If I was, I would not be in this forum. Let's try to put aside all the seniority, and answer my question. What is 32ft/sec^2 times 2? I eagerly await a response.......Saturn.
