Homework Help: physics please help

Posted by Anonymous on Wednesday, October 10, 2007 at 3:32am.

A student standing on the ground throws a ball straight up. The ball leaves the student's hand with a speed of 11.0 m/s when the hand is 1.50 m above the ground.
How long is the ball in the air before it hits the ground? (The student moves her hand out of the way.)



v(final)=v(initial)+at
initial velocity is 15 and final velocity is zero. acceleration is 9.8 right.


how does height fit into this equation. isn't that necessary too.

can u please help me. i keep getting .738s as my answer
