vi^2=2g*height solve for max height.

v = vi - 9.8 t

v = 0 at max height

so

t = 2.7/9.8 time to top = .276

h = 1.2 + 2.7 t -4.9 t^2

=1.57

4.8 - 1.57 = 3.22 below the house

how long will it be in the air before it hits the ground?

Vf^2 = Vo^2 + 2gd = 0,

(2.7)^2 + 2(-9.8)d = 0,

7.29 - 19.6d = 0,

-19.6d = - 7.29,

d = -7.29 / -19.6 = 0.372 m. upward.

d(tot.) = 1.2 + 0.372 = 1.57 m.

4.8 - 1.57 = 3.228 m below the house.
