Estimate height using position-function

To estimate the height of a building, a stone is dropped from the top of the building into a pool of water at ground level.

How high is the building if the splash is seen 6.9 seconds after the stone is dropped?

Use the position function for free-falling objects given below. (Round to one decimal place.)


s(t) = –4.9t2 + v0t + s0


(height in meters)


Would greatly appreciate some guidance on this.
