#### Your Question

The gravitational pull of the Earth allows us to have a great equation to model height of dropped objects over time. The equation is this:

If Joe drops a ball from a height of 12 meters, when will it hit the ground?

#### Hints

- means initial height.
- If it hits the ground, then h(x) = 0.
- Solve the equation.
- This may also help!
