In basketball, the jump that a player can spend in the air during a jump shot is called "hangtime". The hangtime depends on what.

    vertical velocity component after the jump, which is in turn dependant on angle and force of jump.

    I think the hangtime depends on the ability of the player to extend his time in the air, independent of the height of the jump.

    Absolutely not. How can you "extend" your time in the air? The only thing acting on you in the air is gravity.

    Well, actually, if you curl in your legs you technically last longer in the air but you know that doesn't count.
