This is a physics problem
Using conservation of energy...
You could also use kinematics but this method is easier
A baseball player hits a ball. The ball leaves the bat with an initial upward velocity of 35 meters per second. If the ball is 1 meter off the ground when it leaves the bat, about how many seconds will it take for the ball to hit the ground?
I hate science and this seems to be related to that of an science question...could someone help?
Sorry I misread that won't help you find the time, to find the time...
if the maximum height is
the initial height is
and the final height is
and g = -9.8 m/s
first find the time it takes to reach it's max height ,
solve these for and set equal to eachother,
Now solve the quadratic for , that's the time it takes to reach its max height.
That's only a portion of the time the total time is , where is the falling time
