IF a pro basketball player has a vertical hang-time of about 35 inches, what is his hang-time? Use hang-time function V=48T^2. This is how I have started this question

35=38T^With this my answer is 0.854, -0.854 Is this right?

35 inches is not the measurement of a "hang time". Please verify the wording of your question.

Is that the distance he is able to raise his center of mass?

What are the units of V in your equation?

I fear your teacher may be unqualified to teach the subject
