From Vf^2 = Vo^2 + 2gh, Vf = 24.89m/s.

From Vf = Vo + gt, t = 1.04sec.

Thrown upward:

From Vf = Vo - gt, t = 1.5sec. to Vf = 0

From h = Vo(t) - gt^2/2, h = 11.025m.

From peak height to ground = 31.625m.

From Vf^2 = Vo^2 + 2gh, Vf = 24.896m/s.

Distance traveled by ball thrown upward after .8 sec. derives from d = Vo(t) - gt^2/2 or d = +8.624m.

Distance traveled by ball thrown downward after .8 sec. derives from d = Vo(t) + gt^2/2 or d = 14.89m.

a) Difference in air time is 4.04 - 1.04 = 3sec.

b) Vf thrown downward = 24.89m/s

...Vf thrown upward = 24.89m/s

c) Therefore, after .8 sec., the balls are 23.52m apart.
