Sorry, the solution is available only in Hungarian. Google translation

Megoldás. \(\displaystyle a)\) 109,3 m magasan lenne;

\(\displaystyle b)\) 18,7 m/s sebességgel esne lefelé.

\(\displaystyle c)\) Kb. 127 métert emelkedne és 18 métert esne a kavics, tehát összesen 145 m utat tenne meg 7 s alatt.
