Well we know the maximum height occurs when the velocity is at 0 (initial velocity)(time) = (0.5)a(t^2) Diviide both sides by 't velocity = at/2 time = 2v/a = (2)(20.0) / (9.81 m/s/s) time = 4.077sec

hmm i think something wrong in there.. @iNeedTheHelp can you tell which formula you have used?

if i am right u have used s=ut+0.5at^2.. right?

Yeah is there a flaw in the equation?

well if you have use this formula , in it u=initial velocity. and in question initial velocity is given.

Yes I already know that but what is wrong with this equation and sorry I'm kind of tired

its ok.. well your equation will be then s = 24t+0.5at^2

sure no problem :) have sweet dreams ok @stracyl formula is this s=ut+0.5at^2.. s=24, u = 20 a=9.81 24 = 20t+0.5(9.81)t^2 0.5(9.81)t^2 +20t 24 = 0 use quadratic formula and find the roots of t
