public void Play (int stateNameHash, int layer= -1, float normalizedTime= float.NegativeInfinity);


stateNameThe state name.
stateNameHashThe state hash name. If statNameHash is 0, it changes the current state time.
layerThe layer index. If layer is -1, it plays the first state with the given state name or hash.

//Attach this script to the GameObject you want to animate
//Create an Animator Controller component if you haven't already (Right click in the Assets folder and go to Create>Animator Controller).
//Click and drag your Animator Controller into the Inspector of the GameObject you wish to animate.
//In your Animator Controller, create and name two states- one as your default state, and one as the state you want to play ("Jump" in this case). Make sure to link both of these to the Entry state.
//Press the space key in Play Mode to switch to the second state.
