    A rock is dropped from a cliff that is 55 metres tall, and dropped at a velocity of 1.6543 m/s -1.

    How far away is the boat from the cousin of the person who drops the rock?

    25 kilometers, unless the cliff is south of the equator in which case the boat hits the cousin, we will not discuss what happens to the rock
