Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Since the upward velocity starts at 40m/s, we can use the equation v_final = v_inital + at to find the time it takes to go up (since we know at the top, velocity is zero, we have v_final = 0 and v_initial = 40). Don't forget that a (acceleration) is negative, and that the time back down to the ground will be about the same as the time to the top. That should help!
