Problem 42476. Model a falling body

An object is falling freely from a height of 22 meters under the force of gravity.

Ignoring wind resistance, draw a diagram to compute the change in position, x(t), over time given the following equation of motion

Stop the simulation when the object hits the ground. The initial height and mass of the falling object are

and the standard acceleration due to gravity is
