Scenario:
Math!
Calculations
Conclusion
Given: Superman's mass=101kg
Acceleration of gravity=9.8m/s/s
In order for the falling body to hit the ground at terminal velocity, the Green Lantern must launch it into the air at its terminal velocity. From a height of 89.777 meters (295 feet), the body would reach a falling speed of 41.948 meters per second (93.8 mi/h).

manipulation of fundamental forces
energy/matter construction
flight
force field generation
replication of energy waves (important)
awesomeness

Period 2

Earth's Green Lantern and Superman enter a quarrel about who has super-heroic jurisdiction over sector 2814 (including Earth). In order to solve this dispute, the two engage in non-lethal combat.
First, Green Lantern emits a radioactive frequency mimicking Kryptonite, Superman's main weakness, preventing the man of steel's flight and various other abilities.
Question: From how high must Superman fall so he hits the ground at terminal velocity?
F(g)=m*a=9.8*101
