After how many seconds will the stone hit the ground? Round to the nearest hundreth place, include units in your answer.Answer by Alan3354(31487)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Please someone help me with this problem: If a stone is tossed from the top of a 170 meter building, the height of the stone as a function of time is given by h(t) = -9.8ft^2 - 10t + 170. ------------ I think you mean h(t) = -4.9t^2 - 10t + 170 (on Earth) The -10t means it's tossed downward. check that, repost
