A certain volcano on earth can eject rocks vertically to a maximum height H. The acceleration due to gravity on Mars is 3.71 m/s2, and you can neglect air resistance on both planets. If the rocks are in the air for a time T on earth, for how long (in terms of T) will they be in the air on Mars?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So there is a previous part to this question which asks for the ratio between maximum height a rock will reach on Mars and that of a rock on Earth. \[\frac{ Hm }{ H } = 2.64\]in which Hm is the max height a rock on Mars will travel and H is that of a rock on Earth. I know that the initial velocity is 0 and I manipulated a kinematics equation to solve for that ratio. But what should I do to get time? Should I do the same steps incorporating 2.64 somewhere? I can tell you how I solved for 2.64.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0What is my firsrt step? Do I use the formula vf^2 = vi^2 + 2ad and substitute the ratio into d and also set vf = 0?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'm mostly lost on which formula is the most appropriate to use for this question.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Was your first question in terms of h?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2So for that you took the ratio of the kinematic equation v^2 = v0^2+2ah then you should have 2.64H

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Ok, so now use since you want time, what kinematic equation can we use?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0d = Vi(t) + (1/2)a(t)^2 since we know the acceleration on earth, Vi = 0 and we use 2.64 somehow for the displacement?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Yes we use that equation, specifically \[yy_0=v_0t+1/2at^2\] the direction would be the y direction but I'm not to worries about putting subscripts, so the yy0/ d = 0 so then we will be left with \[0=v_0t+1/2at^2\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2The reason it is 0 is because it goes up and then it returns to the ground

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I see! Thanks. Now we need to find V0 to solve for t? Setting V0 to 0 only makes t = 0.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So the answer was actually the same, but the method to get there was different. Thank you so much and thank you for being patient for me!
