a) Here , at the top of the flight , the velocity is zero

b) as the acceleration of the watermelon is same at all time in the air, acceleration = -g = -9.8 m.s^2

c) time taken to reach top is t Using first equation of motion v = u + a*t 0 = -9.5 + 9.8 * t t = 0.97 s the time taken to reach the top is 0.97 s

d) height above the ground = v^2/2g + Ho height above the ground = 9.5^2/*2 * 9.8 + 1.2 height above the ground = 5.81 m the height above the ground is 5.81 m
