Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Ok, what's the equation of motion here? Let u = initial velocity s = initial position g = acceleration due to gravity. Then let y(t) be the position of the particle at time t, and v(t) its velocity at time t in the y direction. We have that \[ v(t) = u  gt \] and \[ y(t) = s + ut  \frac{1}{2}gt^2 \] Now use that and the data given your equation to find the time t for which y(t) = 0; because that is when it reaches the ground.
