I think I'm just missing a simple velocity equation. Cliff Fiver jumps from a ledge 96 ft above the ocean with initial upward velocity of 16 ft/sec. How long will it take until the diver enters the water?Answer by solver91311(18785)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! where is the height in feet afte elapsed seconds, is the initial velocity in feet per second, and is the initial height. Plug in your values: Since the water is at height = 0, set the function equal to zero and solve for the postive value of . John My calculator said it, I believe it, that settles it
