A boat is about to pass under a bridge, with its deck 15 m below the bridge. A spy standing on the bridge drops a secret message from rest when the boat is 25 m away from the drop point. How fast must the boat be moving for the message to reach the spy's contact on the deck?

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

For free fall 

h = 1/2gt^2

t = square root of 2h/g

t= square root of 2*15m/9.8m/s^2

t= 3.061 seconds

speed for message to reach the spy's contact is 

speed = distance / time

speed = 25/3.061 = 8.167m/s

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
