    um... i thought it was H(t)= -16t^2+vt+s

    because we are going to use a=g=-9.81m/s^2

    3.9 feet = 1.18872m and 14.8 feet per second=4.51104 meter per second

    now,v=u+at 0=4.51 + (-9.81)t t=0.46seconds

    Again, v^2=u^2+2as 0^2=(4.51)^2 + 2(-9.81)s s=1.04 m

  23. sauravshakya

    So, maximum height = 1.19+1.04 m = 2.23m

  24. sauravshakya

    Now, s=ut+1/2 at^2 2.23 = 0*t + 1/2 (9.81) t^2 t=0.67 seconds

  25. sauravshakya
    • 2 years ago

    So, total time = 0.46+0.67 =1.13 seconds
