Suppose a scientist on Earth throws a baseball upward. The scientist lets go of the ball 2 meters above the ground with an initial velocity of 10 meters per second. How long does it take for the ball to hit the ground (H=0)? (Use the quadratic formula to solve this problem, show all work). Write a statement to interpret your results.
