use the formula h=rt4.9t^2 when h is in meters and h=rt16t^2.
A rocket is fired upward with an intial speed of 1960m/s. After how many minutes does it hit the ground?

The first formula is for metric units (h is in metres), the second for Imperial units (h is in feet) .
If you live in the US, use the second, if you live elsewhere, use the first.
