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

- physics please help -
**drwls**, Wednesday, October 10, 2007 at 3:53amheight (y) vs time is given by

y = 1.50 + 11 t - 4.9 t^2.

Solve for the time (t) when y = 0. You will have to solve a quadratic equation. Take the positive one of the two answers.

You don't use the velocity vs. time equation in this problem.
