As you look out of your dorm window, a flower pot suddenly falls past. The pot is visible,for a time $t$, and the vertical length of your window is $L_{\mathbf{w}}$. Take down to be the positive direction, so that downward velocities are positive and the acceleration due to gravity is the positive quantity $g$. Assume that the flower pot was dropped by someone on the floor above you (rather than thrown downward).

From what height $h$ above the bottom of your window was the flower pot dropped? Express your answer in terms of $L_{\mathbf{w}}, t$, and $g$.

What is the solution for this problem?
